I have been looking at the photos I have from our days on the ranch in Kent county.. I loved Krystal and Suzie , Ricardo , Irene and you and I spent a lot of time at the house you lived in. Suzie always had food cooking and Irene and I would eat the tortillas as fast as Suzie made them..... She would put beans in them so we loved that... We didn't realize how those were the good day's of our childhood... You are now with the family that has gone on before you .. Rest In Peace Mary Lou...
