There are so many stories I could share about June. She has been in my life for more than 60 years. I think the thing I most want to convey to her kids is what a wonderful mother she was. I babysat them a lot and got the rundown everytime of what the rules were. They were on a schedule and feeding and nap time always the same. Healthy foods! She was the best cook but even if it was healthy she didn't skimp on desserts. She loved her kids and her grandkids. Those grandkids never wanted for attention and a grandma who got down on the floor and played with them. She and Buzz played board games with them and Christmas time was phenomenal. She included me in so many ways when I was young and I will never forget my first date was at their house and she baked the cake. These last few years I had the privilege of giving back the kindness she always gave me. We had so many wonderful conversations about our Lord and how he blessed us. Will miss here so much but happy she is out of pain and is basking in the Joy's of seeing her master and her loved ones. Until we meet again, June .. I love you.

Aunt June always made me feel like the most important person in the world. I have fond memories of visiting her and Uncle Buzz and my cousins at their home in Lebanon. She was always so welcoming and was a great baker too. Even though she was petite, she definitely was never afraid to share her opinions and speak her mind, which was a great lesson I learned from her. Best of all was the way she shared the love of Jesus and how every conversation weaved it's way to talking about faith. I love her, and will miss her dearly until we are reunited in heaven.
