Very sorry to hear about Aunt Luella. She was one of my favorite Aunts and always very fun to be around. I had a chance to stop by and see her and Uncle Steve at their home in Florida when I was trucking. I had dinner there and spent the night. When I left in the morning Aunt Luella handed me a bag and said “Here’s lunch.” She had made me 3 roast pork sandwiches with all the trimmings. When you’re on the road homemade sandwich’s are to die for, but that was Aunt Luella always the kind caring Aunt. Love Rich “Dickie”
