I remember spending a little bit of my summers with aunt Joan when I was a teenager. Having Easter egg hunts at her house. Having Christmas at her house along with Santa. I love her Christmas set up. She also taught me how to do a budget when I moved out on my own. I still use that to this day. She was there for me when I had a hard time with what happen to my mom. She is a very loving and caring person. I love you a lot aunt Joan and will miss you deeply. RIP ❤

I remember all the wonderful Christmases at the Terpening house when all the kids were young. Sharing family time and visiting Santa.
