My Aunt, and my friend, I will miss our lunches and talks and memories we shared about Mom together. Your hugs were from the heart. I will see you in Heaven someday. I imagine you with my Mom in heaven laughing and joking and reminiscing about your shenanigans at Disney and Atlantic City. May God wrap his peace around all of us who love and miss you. You will never be forgotten and will remain one of my inspirations in life forever. 💜💜💜💜💜

My grandma was my very best friend. Spending every single day with her is something I will never forget. She had such a good heart, always putting others before herself. She loved with everything she had. My cruise roomie made every cruise better than the last. We would sit out on the balcony and look out at the stars. We'd make wishes on the shooting stars but not tell each other what we wished because then they wouldn't come true. I miss her so much.
