We offer our condolences and sympathy to all of Aunt Lela's family.
I do have very fond memories of visiting Aunt Lela and my cousins during summers while I was growing up. I remember that Aunt Lela ways always kind and treated me as if I was just another member of her family. I had so much fun during these visits to their home in Highland Park, IL.
I remember waiting for my cousins to finish work at the local Sunset Foods, swimming at the local public pool, playing in Sunset Park and playing golf (when I got older).
It seems a bit odd to me but for some reason, I remember my Aunt's spaghetti dinners! They were great! I don't know why they stick in my mind. I can't even say with certainty how many times I had spaghetti. That is the odd thing about memories and getting older. But I do remember it was delicious!
Aunt Lela, you will be missed by all but we know you are now in a better place and have joined mom, dad, grandpa, and grandma, uncle dick, ralph, aunt lee and all the other relatives that have gone before..
Love Ron and family.
