Dear Joan and Janet,
So sorry, we just learned of your mother’s death! Mike and I moved to Davenport, IA, early in November to live close to Heidi and closer to Michael and their families.
We still enjoy the zucchini rice recipe that your mom shared when we were neighbors on Scotia Trail. Great memories as neighbors! Love and prayers, Mike and Paula
