    Billy and family sorry to hear of Aunt Eunice passing, such great memories we had with ya’ll.
    It is said you die three times once when you heart stops, when you are buried an no longer seen on this earth, and when your name is no longer spoken. She will live long in our and her family memory but as we all know, Eunice was really just born again and we will all meet with her in what seems a far off time but will be just a twinkling of the eye and we will dwell with her for eternity
    With love the Plunketts of Texas
