Many fond memories of Aunt Waneta have been playing through my mind this week. She was always so sweet and attentive to all of us. I loved sitting and listening to the conversations she and Mom would have on those Saturday nights when we were all together. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss her terribly. I will see you on Friday. Love, Lee Ann
