I have a lifetime of memories with Aunt Susie. She was an amazing woman with a heart of gold. I loved to hear her sing and laugh. She had a laugh that made you laugh. She gave the best hugs.
We spent our visits shopping, going out to eat and talking. Whenever I would go to visit her and Grandma I would always sleep at Aunt Susie's house. I would sleep in the living room on the couch or on the fold up cot. Whichever dog she had would always sleep with me.
I remember the peanut butter fudge that Aunt Susie would send each Christmas. It melted in your mouth.
Aunt Susie taught me how to do counted cross stitch. She made such beautiful pictures and she passed that ability onto me. I was always happy to bring a project to show her when I visited.
I will miss you and think about you every day.
I love you so much.
Love your Julie Bug
