Aunt ludy,
I miss you so much. I can't help but think of all the happy times we had. The times you would come down and visit grandma and grandpa. I always enjoyed and cherished every moment. I'll love you always.

Aunt Ludy was always gracious , kind and patient. I still remember her smile and laugh. My mother spoke highly of her and enjoyed her company at family gatherings. Once I knocked on her door with a case of heat exhaustion and she took me in and helped me out. Sweet lady. Rest in peace Aunt.

Dave,
I was very sorry to hear of your loss. The loss of a parent is always a difficult challenge to deal with at anytime. Try to think of all the great positive and fun memories that you had with her. Plus keep in mind, that she is in a better place.

My best,
Craig Gleason
