I am truly sorry for your loss of June, she was a great person and a special lady. I had lunch with her and my Aunt Mary many times and she was always a joy to be with. Those two ladies never forgot anything! Anything I asked about the family they knew! I feel very blessed that I got to spend the time I did with these two ladies. Ninety years is a long time to live and I think June lived her life well. Many blessings to all of you, she will be missed. Karen
