I remember my Aunt Mary as a terrific, caring mother for her three boys and my Uncle Bob. Her family, along with mine (as I am her niece) spent most holidays at our grandparents home together, in Indianapolis. It seems that every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter we spent the day together. I was nine when my Uncle Bob and Aunt Mary introduced me to my first cousin, Bob. Several years later, we were introduced to another special package, my cousin Mike. Then one Christmas morning we were greeted with a baby in a Christmas stocking, Chris. From that time forward, I had three boy cousins that I love to this day! At those precious holiday gatherings my Aunt Mary would always bring the special dishes her boys (including Uncle Bob) loved. I loved those dishes. To this day I adore those receipts as Aunt Mary shared them with me. I will always have her recipes and they will always remind me of that special Aunt that I shared so many holidays with. I love you and will miss you Aunt Mary but I also know you have risen to the most spectacular safe and loving home your soul was distended for. With loving hearts, Gilann, Bill and Christie.
