Thank you very much for moving to Burley when you did. We (the Bowers kids) loved playing with the both of you when you lived in the little yellow house. I think we came over more so we could get some goodies from Cami. She probably made more than a thousand cookies for us! Thank you for the memories. May the Lord be with all of you during this time. She was an amazing woman!
