What can I say about my aunt. She was a wild and crazy woman, said in a good way. I remember as a kid playing with my cousins in their house and she would call us in for lunch or when the family would get together at their house to play bingo. She was a beautiful caring woman and very devout.
She will be greatly missed but now she is in peace.
