I have wonderful memories of so many years of holidays, celebrations, and picnics with Aunt Frances, Uncle Bucky and Gary and our families. They were the best! Aunt Frances was tiny in stature but you wouldn't want to cross her! Her carrot cake and torpedo grinders were famous and fed us for many outings. I believe the "old gang" is complete now and back together dancing the polka with the angels.
