Almost each and every memory I have as a child growing up in MN prior to moving to FL includes my Uncle Dave and Aunt Dode...with my best friend and cousin Amy. My brothers and I spent so much time under their roof...my love and prayers to you all...wish we could be there to give you a big hug! Peace be with all of you! Andrea (Nunnelee) White and Family
