To my Dear Aunt Virgie,
One thing that stands out to me about my beautiful Aunt, is she is one classy lady and has a heart of gold. She is generous to others and loved her children and grand children so much. My Aunt Virgie will be truly missed and I’m pretty sure, I got my great sense of style from my aunt. My Aunt loved her birds. She would sit in her kitchen and watch the birds go to the feeders. Every time I see a bird, it will remind me of my loving, Aunt Virgie, You will forever remain in my heart. Patti Slack
