  1. Gram,
    You finally got your wish! I know you are happy and at peace now. Our recent visits gave me looks back into your history I probably would never have known. Thank you for those special memories.

    I love you and miss you!

  2. Aunt Florence,
    We had good conversations through the years. Getting to know you and our family, long gone, through stories was a gift that I will be forever grateful. Discovering them through you gave me personal perspective as to the proud people I come from. As Godmother, and aunt, you did acts of kindness that I truly appreciated. I’ll miss you.
