She was a special Aunt and was loved by me, my sisters, and brother. We live in Texas so we didn't get to visit very often. Her 90th. birthday was a special time spent with her and we will never forget it.
I took her shopping when she was well enough to get out. She always wanted to shop for something pretty and she loved purple. Ice cream for lunch occasionally and that was all she wanted. On one visit we went to the park and fed the ducks. She is with Jesus now & that is where she wanted to be.
