    When her and your dad was here in Great Falls Mt, she work as A nurse at our hospital here,on the floor she worked on ,it seemed like everyone was getting pregnant, they finally decided it was the water. Your mom and I laughed about it and I said ,guess unless you want a baby you better start bringing your own water,, She was really a lot of fun, I was sad when they were transferred . . I was so happy to see her on Facebook, but so sad when she told us she was sick,, I know she will be missed by many .Prayers for her family,,
