  1. Grandma was an unforgettable part of my childhood, I remember visiting her house every week or so and getting to see her face and hear her wonderful stories. Its always sad to lose something that means a lot to you, but I thank you for all the treasured memories that you’ve left for us, and for my wonderful family.

  2. Aunt Dorothy was a big influence in my life. She introduced me to the amazing world of classical music. She also sang in an amazing soprano.
    She could read a stack of books in a day, I love to watch her do this and carry a stack of books each day to and from the library. She read everything and retained it all.
    Her laugh was as musical as her voice. It made us always laugh with her. I recall hours of her and her sister (My mother Valerie) talking at the dining room table and the subjects were so varied and interesting. I was always in awe of her but always so full of love for her.
    She made life better just with her presence.
