      I echo my mother’s sentiments. Lots of great childhood memories with the Weber family! Mom and Joyce’s annual shopping trips with us kids, playing at each other’s houses and our moms not “playing favorites” when it was time for discipline! Thankful to grow up just a couple blocks apart, making memories together! May you all hold onto the fond memories of your Mom, Grandma, Sister, Aunt, & Friend!
