I love you Aunt M. You are very missed and I know you will be watching over all your family. I remember visiting you in the summers or when I lived with my mom and we always had a blast. I always did you hair in crazy ways and we would laugh so hard. I will remember washing the dogs and it started raining and then the hail hit and we ran under a table because it was the closest thing we could cover with. I will remember the scary movies we loved to watch and the times we did yard work so Uncle Don wouldn't have any reason to say anything lol I love you.
