Pammie & Kimmie,

Aunt Faye was my go to person for the longest time, as you both know. I remember how we would all get to giggling when we were little, and she would come downstairs and ask who wanted Krispy Kremes and daddy (Tony) wouldn't let us have any until we stopped giggling, but we couldn't because both he and Aunt Faye would keep acting funny.
I know this is hard, but just know that I am holding a space for you both as you travel this road. I love you both!
