She was a wonderful, loving person, always willing to help anyone. The very best aunt you could ever imagine.
She also worked with the Boy Scouts of America.
I loved the way she told stories, Sunday school, flannel boards, etc. She had a special gift.
She use to drive across town to baby sit my children at night until my mom or I got off work. They got a VCR recorder one year and She made Todd come with her and video tape Kathy playing.
She gave me my Nick name (Little Brucie).
I saw a Star wars clip last night and remember her and Todd going to see the movie many, many times.I
Know she was so glad to see her baby boy again!
I was truly blessed for her to be in my life.
