  1. I’m her niece. Growing up with her as my aunt was amazing. She never took bull from anybody. We would spend many nights there when I was a kid. She always said she wasn’t the cool aunt but she was more than she knew. I’ll miss her dearly. I love you Aunt

    • Charlotte, we are thinking & praying for you today & tomorrow as you say your last earthly goodbyes to your sister. Love you Jean & Charlie
