Families are like quilts lives pieced together

1. Plaque given to mom in 1996 that hung in both Heber, AZ and Yuma, AZ. homes.

2. Dad napping with Qurious in Yuma 2007. The black item under his pillow is the T.V. changer. On the wall behind is the lap quilt made by family member in 1992.

3. Felice modeling grandma Jarvis' wedding dress found in grandma's
cedar chest August 2008.

4. Dad smiling for the camera in his chair 2006. He had been released from the Yuma Regional Medical Center for pneumonia. While there he and mom were in the same room for a few days after she fell and fractured her 11th and 12th lumbar discs.

5. Dad and Sam (who looks like Burk's dog Snowball) standing in Dad's famous garden in Heber, AZ garden. This was in the early planting season of spring of 1998. Dad loved to share his harvest.

6. Happy fishermen. Rod (my brother), dad and his oldest brother Emer. The woke very early in the morning for good fishing! Uncle Emer and dad were best friends and brothers. This picture was taken in Emer's home in Snowflake, AZ. I'm not sure of the date. I believe it was 1963.
