Aunt Dee,
Thank you for being a wonderful Godmother. I will always remember the Sundays we spent with you and Grandma eating pasta and watching you play pinochle. My love of romance novels (or smutty books as my mother would call them) came from you. Thank you for always remembering my children on their birthday or holidays. I will Miss You.
