Dearest Aunty, I was so thankful I was able to visit you in 2016 and spent quality time with you and the cousins.

I loved teasing you about your political positions. You always knew I did so with love and humor.

I adored your quirky ways and how flustered you pretended to be in those fleeting moments. I love and cherish all those big squeezes and hugs.

I felt that all the good, precious memories of you and my mom were passed onto my DNA and our love for the Almighty was and is our eternal bond. I look forward to seeing you on the other side.

My memories of you will always be with me and when I see your children that glimmer in your eyes still looks back at me.

You are loved and remembered.

Sandy, my dearest sweet friend, my heart breaks for you and your family. I know your Mom is in Heaven and at peace and I know you will miss her. I wish I could be there for you like you were there for me. I pray that God wraps His arms around you in your time of need and Blesses you with Peace in your heart. Love you always. Sharon
