We were so sorry to hear of your recent loss. May you find strength in one another and peace in your many wonderful memories of your mom and grandmother. I have fond memories of playing Wainfleet Ladies Slo pitch with Nettie when I was in highschool. Although she and her daughters were on the opposing team we always had a lot of fun. May she rest in peace.
