Memories Timeline


  1. Dinah: I know how much you loved your Aunt Liddy. I remember how she always attended the Living Center singalong years ago. Recently I stopped by her room to say hi and she always had a smile on her face. She and Emelia seemed to be enjoying a visit. Will pray for you as you adjust to your life without Aunt Liddy.
