    It is so hard to believe Pawpaw Tommy — Granny Pats life partner for 65 years (Dona Kay, Roxanne, Wayne and Lynn’s dad) has already been gone from the family) for a year today. It doesn’t seem possible.. Maybe because we are so far away.

    Your MN family loves all of you down there and have you close to our hearts.

    Love Lynn, Nikki and MN fasmily ‘
