My heart breaks as I cope with the loss of such an amazing aunt. Aunt June was the most loving, caring, thoughtful, selfless, sweetest, God loving, & Christian woman I have ever known. This world won't be the same without her. To my family, especially her kids, grandchildren: My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless you with his loving presence, peace, comfort, understanding, and an outpour of love and support during this difficult time. I hope you smile with comfort when she comes to mind, knowing she's an Angel in heaven & by your side all the time! I love you all!
With deepest sympathy and love,
Chelsea Cornett (Smith)
