They traveled to Hawaii  for 30 some years  each winter. The little motor home that mom drove, (and dad kept shiny) brought many happy times with family and friends all over our island as well as many places in the US. also there were a multitude of cruises that were very much enjoyed as well.

     Nora (mom) slipped away peacefully in the early morning hours of Dec 24th, 2012, at her son’s home in Duncan, with her husband of 65 years by her side. A life well lived, to the fullest for 92 ½ years…
