We were only 15 months apart, so, I didn’t think of you as my aunt but more of a friend/cousin. In our early years we spent a lot of time together having so much fun (and causing a little trouble sometimes). As time went on we didn’t get together much but were never far apart in our thoughts. In the last few years we have spent many hours talking on the phone discussing our families (children, grandchildren and great grandchildren). We tried to piece together our family genealogy and learned so much about our past families. These last few days I have thought of things that I learned and that I know would have made you laugh. I will miss talking to you and sharing. This life journey has not been easy for you at times but now you can rest easy. I love you!

There are several things that will always remind me of you: 1) maple fudge, 2) chocolate cake with white icing, 3) dollar theaters, 4) West Virginia trivia, and 5) all things Elvis. I will miss our long phone calls, going to see old movies and plays, eating at diners, and shopping for used books. I will miss you sending me home with Country Crock containers packed full with leftovers. I will miss your sense of humor, fierce independence, love for redheads, and loyalty to your family. I love you Mam Maw and will always cherish our memories together.
