That beautiful photo brings back memories of when we lived in Valpo and Dorathy and my mom Laura Prahl were friends. I can picture them, up in heaven, enjoying each other's company. So many great pictures and memories to cherish. May God bring you comfort and His peace as you share joy and tears together, remembering a loving mother and grandmother and fine Christian!
