    Thinking about all those miserable Summer days selling corn at the stand. Then came pumpkins, who could get the best price. And Winter...we would be so cold, you stayed later in the year than I. I thought about you so often, but was assured to not call you, you were with family. And that was where you ALWAYS wanted to be. Bless your heart, Dianne. I will never forget you. Jane
