I was sadden to hear the news of the passing of my friend . She was sweet and kind human being with a gentle soul. We kept in touch by phone or text we shared stories good or bad as she gave me advise . I had the pleasure of traveling with her and because of that I saw places I wouldn't have . I know she's not suffering no more and is with her loves ones that passed before her especially her husband . But I know right about now she is doing one of the things she loved and trying to catch that big one . I'm going to miss our talks lady. I will treasure our memories and keep our secrets . R.I.P gone but never forgotten . Always in my heart .

My biggest Memory is Going to my Aunt's house every Saturday Night for Tacos. No one made Tacos like my Aunt Mitzie. Me and my younger Cousins would get to eat 1st before everyone else. When we were done. We'd go play outside . The others would eat and then play Poker all night long.

Aunt Mitzie, you loved me like one of your own. You taught me how
to fish and crab, and we shared a love of antiques. I will miss you very much, but I know you are watching over me (as stated in your letter, lol).
Dance for eternity with mom, Uncle Rex, Aunt Gloria, Grandmother, and Pop.
💛 I love you so much! 💛
