Where do I begin...
I have known this wonderful lady my entire life,she and my mom were best friends before I was born. I grew up spending as much time in her home as much as I did my own, probably more. When there problems at home I knew I could go to my second home and all would be well.
I remember going to Stillhouse Lake and camping,going to the post roller rink while mom and Evelyn played bingo, we always had a great time when we were all together. When Shirley and I started dating it always had to be a double date with a curfew, if we thought we were gonna be late, we would call and say we were getting pizza to bring home,she always let us get away with it.
As the years went by,we didn't see or talk to each other alot,but I could pick up the phone and call and the time would just melt away and it was as if we were never apart.....
Rest easy Aunt of my heart.I love you and we will talk again.....
