My dear sweet cousin, you were beautiful all of your life, physically and spiritually. I remember the night Darl brought you home to meet us as his bride. I was overcome with your beautiful smile and loved you from the start. I will miss our connecting every Christmas and my heart is sad. I know Darl and all of our clan are overjoyed to see you again. Keep an eye out for me. Always my love. Gloria Jeanne

Mrs.Callahan was the sweetest thing. She made me a blue silk pillowcase. I’ve slept on it every night since the day she gave it to me. It matches absolutely nothing on my bed but I don’t care. I love it because she gave it to me. It goes with me when I travel. I always put an old pillowcase over it to protect it till I get where I’m going so it won’t get picked or pulled. I don’t know what I’ll do one day when it completely falls apart!
I can still see the sweet smile on her face as she sits on the pew in the auditorium on Sunday morning. I enjoyed getting to talk to her each week before the service. I sure will miss her. ❤️🌸
