My aunt Virginia whom I known all my life was the sweetest person and my memories of her are the great Mac and cheese dish she made ... Also the fresh beds clothes if you spent a night at her house and got under her sheets you thought you were outside in fresh air.
Please let me know when there's a memorial for my aunt. I loved her dearly. My deepest sympathy to get sister a and brother. Best regards. Pat Leatrice Caricofe
