I am very thankful that I had the chance to see my wonderful aunt and introduce her to two of my four children. I know that she was the one closest to my dad, and he is someone I have missed everyday for more than 40 years now. So full of life and stories, she never missed an opportunity to spend time with loved ones.

I love you all very much, and I hope that her memory will be the blessing that my dad's has been for me.

I have never met a lovelier
woman. Always a kind beautiful smile and great conversation. Her love for her family was truly enchanting. I will miss her.
