One of the sweetest, most loving people I have known. I first met her when I was about 15 and even though she was Allen's Aunt and not mine by blood, I always felt she was mine. She and Uncle George were the best! A memory that stands out in my mind was how much talking to her helped me cope with Allen's death. I went to see her and she and I had some talks about it and she told me how she felt when Uncle George passed away. She helped me more than she will ever know. She was still sharp as a tack and up on everything almost to the end. Hope I can be like that. I will miss you Aunt Rae, but am happy to think she and Uncle George and her siblings are playing wahoo and partying at this moment. Love you, Cindy

She and uncle George were both aunt and uncle and sometimes surrogate grandparents. As they always lived close and stayed available they were a comfort who helped me grow. They will enjoy being together again. Many will miss them.

Aunt Rae loved her Cindy and Christi greatly, as well has her grandchildren and talked of them lovingly, often. Aunt Rae was a gentle caring person who was always thinking of others. I remember once when I had surgery, she and Uncle George were the first to bring dinner when I came home from the hospital. The food she made was so soothing it was like she knew exactly what I needed to eat to get well. I have many fond memories of her, playing wahoo with her and Uncle George through the years and Aunt Rae almost always won. She was a gentle, compassionate woman who was always smiling and laughing. I will miss you Aunt Rae!!
