Our condolences to Bev and her family - Jane, John, and Kathryn. To Aunt Dot, my Godmother, you were the epitome of kindness, love, caring, compassion, and family throughout all my years on this Earth. I am sorry I could hug you one last time, hold you in my arms, and tell you just how much you meant to me. Aunt Dot - I love you so much and will miss you so much - you and my Mom always had a pact to "go together" - I know you are now in Heaven with my Mom and Dad, Uncle John, Grandma and Grandpa, and your brothers and sisters...I sincerely hope all of you are now embracing and hugging after so many years apart. You are and forever will be a part of me and in my heart Godmother - may you Rest In Peace - I Love YOU forever! John David XOXOXO
