I met Sissy when I was very young and newly married .She became my sister ( in law ). She had been apart of this very large and complexed family for a long time . She took me under her wing and showed me not only how to navigate the the ins and outs of this mega family ,she was always close by . We spent alot of time together durning my 7 years ,holidays were always with her and her family .we vacationed together and shared many good times . When I left the family ,she never held it against me . We lost touch after a few years but she was always thought of and the times we shared . A few years ago I able to be fortunate enough to get together with her ,Mickey ,their wonderful daughter Melody and her wonderful family . She looked great and even though the years had been hard on her she still had that wonderful smile and loving heart . My heart breaks for her family's loss .Even more so for her husband Mickey .she had been by his side for 50 years . Rest in peace Sissy ,you left you family in wonderful hands ,Melody's. With her here and you watching over them from up above they will all be fine .
Love and prayers to you all.
