Dear Bev abd Jerry, What can I say about this wonderful christian wife,mother grandmother,great-grandmother.I spented three summers at the farm, babysitting with Deb and Rob,oh how I remember the time I got to spend with them and all the "Life" lessons she showed and taught me. She was quite the multi-tasker, and she did it ALL and it was done RIGHT.By the time I would get there she would already have milked the cow,had the laundry done and hung out to dry,and when I got there she was of to the garden to harvest what was ready,and to replant the crop that was spented. I prize her hand written reciept for green tomato pickles that I have framed it has hung on the wall of my kitchen for sum 45 years. I have thought about her example many times over the years,and I was SO happy to get to see her and talk with her at Mike and Michele's wedding.I know that on July 29th she was welcomed in to Heaven with" come home my good and faithful servant" Brenda Hileman-Smith
