To my sister,
I remember hiding behind the hedge with Patricia 'Trish' Polacco watching you and Keith kiss while on the front porch of the Middle St house in Williamston.
When you married, I was about 5' tall, and struggled to light the tall candles in the church.
Your cookies arriving at Christmas time were always anxiously awaited. The tins returned each year so I would be able to get more the next year!
You were loved by many and and will be missed. You were such a giving person and a wonderful big Sis. Love you so much.
Your baby brother, Ron
