I remember that when I was a kid, I was POSITIVE that Aunt Sally was a model or an actress. When we'd spend summer vacations at Half Mile Lake with the family, it didn't matter WHAT Aunt Sally was doing - picking blueberries, riding in the motorboat, or sitting on the dock, she looked FABULOUS doing it. Those are some of the best memories of my childhood, and I'll always remember my gorgeous, blue-eyed Aunt Sally.

To: Bill, Pam and Terry:
I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have very fond memories of her, and her sense of humor. I am glad that you we're all able to be with her when she passed. I hope that you all will continue to share her memories, and know that she was a very special lady and a great friend to my mother. They are probably in heaven together enjoying catching up.
