She was my Mother’s sister who I know from childhood. She had the most beautiful home at Oak Island and the cutest little dog Maggie that I got a personalized blanket for. Glennie and Louis I thought always made the Best Couple! I will always love her,
Sincerely and with Respect because she really made an effort to do the right thing and make amends right before she went to Heaven and I appreciate this! Tina Wilds
