As a kid always love to go visit Aunt Eloise and Uncle Red,she always had that beautiful smile and we always knew we were going to get some of her homemade ice cream. As I grew older out of the blue, she would just call to see how I was doing. She was such a loving , caring women and had a heart of gold.
