My Darling Lota, I will truly miss you and our chats twice a week. I loved your stories, help with recipes, reading you the bible and sitting out in the sun together. How you loved the sun! We only knew each other for a year but what a full year it was! Right up to our last visit on Mon. you knew me and chatted just a little that day. I know you are now resting in peace. I will always keep you in my heart.
Love to you, Jeannie

Judy and Tony Zimbelman
