  1. She was a great lady. I remember her as our den mother in Cub Scouts. One day, the snack we had was a new product, just on the market – Jiffy Pop!
    We all sat around and watched with our mouths open as the foil ball over the pan grew and grew.
    She always had sonething special for us.
    She can now spend time with the two men in her life’ Bob Sr and Bobby.
    I will miss them all, but always have good memories of them.
