How I wish we could turn back time. After our mom and your sister Sara died our families lost contact. I often wondered where you and Uncle Bill where and all of my cousins. You were the sweetest most kind soul and I am sorry I missed the chance to find you and tell you in person. I will cherish my memories of your visits with Cathy and then the rest of the cousins that followed. Rest in peace my sweet Aunt. Hug mom Sara and my son Dylan for me when they greet you on the other side. With love Your niece Chris
