I'm going to start this the way I started every email, this is your favorite niece! I keep thinking back to the last time I talked with you Uncle Bobby and I asked you what you were doing on a ladder and your reply to me was you were checking the altitude! I told my friend what you said and she told me, at least now I know where you get it from! Yep!

Who is going to hassle me about wearing flip flops to drive or about my politics? You are my uncle, you will be missed and one thing I know for sure is that you loved me and I loved you and we both loved God. You will always be in my heart.

Your favorite niece -- Sandy
