Aunt Althea was one of my favorite aunts!!!! She was always so much fun to be around. She loved all her family fiercely and there were a lot of us to love! My favorite memory was when I was a little girl, and she and Uncle Warren would come over "to the country" for a visit. They would bring me a bag of M&M's. It always made my day that they would think of me. I will miss you tons! I love you Aunt Althea!
Love,
Terry G
