I remember when you would come visit when I was a young girl, it was always an exciting time and I hated when you would have to leave! I loved time spent with you and Aunt Anita. We went to get doughnuts at Dunkin Doughnuts on one visit with Mom to see you and it seemed like it took forever to get there. Fort Worth was so BIG compared to our tiny town! I always enjoyed getting to visit you and Aunt Anita in Texas as I got older as well. So many wonderful memories. You will always be loved and remembered.
