In Lula’s Golden years Mom enjoyed her garden, flowers, greenhouse, that she was so proud of. Berry picking, camping, playing cards, canning, knitting. Mom loved her fishing. She didn’t care if there was a storm coming she would say it will pass. Just so she could stay in the boat. And sometimes it got her in trouble. Most of all she enjoyed her family.
