May you rest in peace auntie! I can remember countless all nighters we used to pull and just sit at the table, eat, laugh, and reminisce about the good old days. I will always remember you for the sweet soul you were and how you gave me advice on how to be a decent person. I love you so much!! You are sadly missed, until we meet again. Xo
