I loved being with Violet and family for holidays on the farm. She was a great cook and always so welcoming. I also loved to cook for her when she moved to Fargo. She would always say come again. You will be greatly missed, Violet. God Bless!

Mom, I already miss you lots ! I will always cherish our relationship we had together. Our trip to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland in 1980. The time we rode on a charter bus to Seattle, WA. We sure had a good time and lots of memories to remember. After we arrived we boarded on cruise ship headed to Alaska. I will always cherish the memories we shared. I Love You Mom Hugs and kisses too. Love Ramona
