What a unique and special Aunt you were to me. You always made me smile and had a very quirky sense of humor. You and Uncle Jimmy were a great comedy team. I have lots of wonderful memories at your home when I was a young girl. I always enjoyed the relationship you had with my mother and how you always called each other ‘Sister’ which now is what I call my three sisters. You will not soon be forgotten and I am so grateful to know that I will see you again one day. Give Uncle Jimmy a big hug from me and Daddy, too. So this is not goodbye, but see ya later.
