To the Farmer family I will alway remember your Mother/Grandma/ Great Grandma to some of you !

I grew up as a child next to her and she was always a great neighbor and still remember how she had to be actively involed in the farming! To this day still remember her riding on the back of old farm machinery running it while her Husband was driving the tractor!

I remember in 2009 I had Eggplant coming out my ears and my Mother told me how much she loved it so I sent some over !

I Remember being a kid all her grandkids being out there of which we still see eatch from time to time.

She will be missed and was a big part of my life !

God Bless you all !
