Two memories of many:
I remember how we would tease her when Uncle Buddy was on a trip. She would be saying”I want my Buddy” over and over as she did things around the house. Us kiddos would follow her mocking her. She took it in stride and laughed with us !
Another memory is messing with her in the mornings before she could drink her first cup of coffee and cigarette. She would growl at us and when we took off running ,that laugh is what I heard.
I will truly miss that laugh and seeing the smile that came with it.
I know she is happy now with those that have gone before her.
She is in Uncle Buddy’s arms once again,
Love you Aunt Inez and tell everyone with you I send my love 😘
