Aunt Ethelene was a genuine soul. The last time I saw her was when her mother "Granny" passed away. Although it was a tough time, it was a joy to spend time with my mother's oldest sister. Although we didn't talk often, I know I get my candor from her.

I will never forget how brave she was and how much faith she had! May she always live in the hearts of those who loved her. I look forward to reading everyone's fond memories of my aunt. To my cousins, I'm sorry for all of our loss, but may you all find comfort in the memories of your Angel. She will be missed.

Many Blessings,
Cousin Corey
