Gardening was one of her favorite things to do out front of her house and she always took pride in her up keep of that, weather it be a few new plants in the spring or the occasional new figurines that would grace her gardens. When she was done planting it could rival any cover from Home & Garden magazine. It just looked so beautiful! As far music goes she was a fan of many different types but the country band Alabama was her favoriteyou could always catch her listening to them while enjoying a cold Genny Ceam Ale or a glass of wine.
