Aunt Mary was such a special person in my life, from the outings in Cincinnati when I was a little girl to the special visits in Clearwater. She and Uncle Bud were always such warm and welcoming hosts. She was a strong yet gentle woman and will be greatly missed.

Where to start?? One of my favorite things about grandma was her spirited and feisty nature. One memory I will never forget is accompanying her on errands and shopping trips when I would visit during the summers... on several occasions during these drives, she would get really ticked off at other drivers for various infractions, and I remember clearly once wanting to melt into my seat because she laid on the horn so long I was sure that everyone within a 5 mile radius was staring at us. I think I probably did slide down in my seat. I had the nerve to say something about her extended horn-honking afterward and I do not remember exactly how she responded but I know that whatever it was, it was completely unapologetic!

She also loved her chocolate peanut butter ice cream. I remember going out for ice cream in the summer and her relishing a good chocolate peanut butter cone. That happens to be my favorite too. :) She always showed us a good (& occasionally embarrassing) time in Florida during those summer trips for so many childhood years. Wonderful memories. I will miss her.
