My love and prayers are with each of you. I loved her very much and we had a lot of fun times together. One thing about it. She had a heart to take care of her family and she sure loved you all. I would be there if I could ,but have a bad knee. I will always love you
Aunt Donna (Psalms 46 ) God's Grace will see you through .
