I so much enjoyed our yearly get together as I put together flower arrangements to take to the cemetery and you were so helpful and complimentary on how I was doing and what needed a little tweak here or there. I learned a lot about family and am grateful you gave me answers or at least some insight on many things I may not have come to know. I will truly miss our time together and the special gift you have given me. You made me laugh and I love you for that, my dear Aunt.
