David, Dianne, and Doug,
I was sorry to hear the passing of your mom. She was always welcoming when I came to visit. We are living back in Martinsville now after 30 or more years in Richmond. We moved back about five years ago. My mom passed away in 2016 and dad in 1993. David and I had some fun times back in the early 70's.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear cousins David, Dianne, and Doug and all the family,
Aunt Aileen's passing is a real mark in time for me and for my mama, Frances, Aileen's sister-in-law. In the past ten years I was fortunate to be able to bring Aileen to my parents' house to visit and also to visit in her home. She was always so warm and inviting. And she has been a real friend to Mama in the past few years. They would speak on the phone multiple times during the week, and during basketball season they would get on the phone and talk about the ballgame while they each watched the game in their own homes. Her passing is a true loss for my mama.
I am attaching a photo of Aileen and my dad, Bernard, her brother, taken in the early 2000's.
I feel your hearts in my heart.
With love, Linda Hube and Frances Franklin
