2013 has been a tough year.....



In loving memory of my Mother-in-Law

Pamala Bowman Breeden

March 17, 1931 to July 30, 2013


Mom and John, 1954



 Mom and Dad, 1963



Mom and Dad, 2001



John and I were able to spend a week with Mom on our trip out west in April.  She was feeling good, with no symptoms of the cancer.  We took her shopping, out for meals, and to her favorite place....the Barona Casino!  She had a ball, and we're thankful we could give her that last outting to her 'fun' place!

She passed peacefully Tuesday, without feeling any more pain.  We're grateful for that.
