Talk about a Most SPECIAL Aunt She was IT! Always Nice, Gracious and Kind. If you ever needed help, No Problem, she would be there to help you and helped me Many times. Did I mention COOKING? When I was little and spent the night she would make Snowman and Mickey Mouse Pancakes. When I got a little older her Spritz Cookies were my favorite. Then her Cheesy Potatoes were my favorite ( Did you know you can freeze them ahead, she thought me that.). I could go on about all the things that made her a most SPECIAL AUNT but one thing I do know is she will be Missed!
Did I mention her Laugh!😻
