To Uncle Jack, and the Family of Auntie Emma,
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I have been thinking a lot of Auntie Emma and what she meant to me, especially during my years in Barrhead. She was a great cook, always very crafty, and had a hearty laugh. I know she will have much to share with Mom in heaven, and we will all miss her. I'm sorry that I couldn't make it to her funeral, but my thoughts were with you all.
