I recall going to visit with my mother and father visiting Neal and Violet at the farm and them visiting in South Fork. They were fine down to earth people. Wishing you peace as she has passed to her eternal home with her beloved husband Neal.

The Primel family and my mother's family Moel, came from Berrien Bretagny, France together.

Loved my Mother in Law with all my heart. She taught me so much on how to be a better person and lived life helping others any way she could help. I can not say enough about her profound influence in my life. I will miss her eternally.
