My nana was an awesome grandmother to me and my sisters. She loved all her grandkids, great grandkids and great great grandkids. As a mighty base to our family tree which has grown strongly up and out from her love and wisdom passed on through each generation.

I remember Johnny on the street sweeper in Hemet. Irene and Mae when they had the Spudnut shop. They were always so friendly. Everyone who came in contact with the family liked them. They are greatly missed. I think back on all the memories I have with a lot of joy. God Bless all of you.
