Aunt Juanita, Will always remember your kindness in showing us the sights of Northern Florida, especially St Augustine. Also in opening your house for the two of us. Many memories involving Xmas exchanges, cookies for oranges, pecans for black walnut meats and a shared love of a good fruitcake. Will also miss hearing the (3) versions of "Happy Birthday" sung to me on the phone. With love from Bill and Sue Bowman
