My mother was advised that I was going to be born 1/12/73. My Aunt Verna told the doctors that they were wrong & I was going to be born on her birthday. And I was born on her birthday 1/19. My birthday is 1/19/1973. I also inherited her love of chocolate. I loved my Aunt Verna McNeal. She joins so many of thoses I loved & miss. God give strength to our family and her children and grandchildren.
