Aunt Nita was a great aunt. When we were young we got to spend the night. My sister and myself. She made us doll clothes. When we got older mom would drive us over to her house and we helped in her garden. She also had a swimming pool we visited when mom took us. Jim would take us down by the dam and we explored a lot. Nita was always a kind soul. Sadly after my mom passed I didn't visit her house much. Got to see her at reunions though. Have a great reunion now with your sisters in heaven.

Aunt Wanetta was my second mother growing up. I will miss her. She was sharp as a tack.
Taught me so many things. Was involved in my life. Took me to the theater I will never forget. Picking Cherries from her trees.
You will always be in my thoughts. I love you.

Aunt Wanetta was a wonderful lady. She was strong, hard working and a bit stubborn at times but what I will remember most about this special lady was her big and loving heart. She loved you, Jim, and she loved her nieces and nephews showing that love in numerous ways. I will miss her but I won’t forget her.
