Thank you Auntie Lulu for being apart of my childhood memories. Thank you for the summer days lounging by your pool, using your typewriter for school reports, and helping Diane and I in celebrating our parents' 25th anniversary. The list goes on. Enjoy a cup of coffee with my Mom and Auntie Mimi. Until we meet again-

I still remember my introduction to coffee as a young child at my aunt's house. It was more like "coffee milk" but it made me feel so special. I also remember all the parties and washing dishes and feeling downright "homey". My Aunt Louise always welcomed me with open arms, and her kitchen was a time of happiness, sharing, and family. You are special and loved, Aunt Louise, and will be sorely missed. I'm sharing my coffee today with you in mind, and probably by my side. God Bless, Auntie! With much love, your niece, Donna
