  1. I think of my family members every day. But my Aunt Annie holds some of my fondness memories. I used to ride my bike to see her. Just to be with her was soothing. We had so much in common. We loved to work in he garden and mow the grass. She loved to laugh yet she could be serious and sensible. Many times I confided in her and she never once betrayed a confidence. I am so proud to have had our chats and luncheons of grilled cheese on rye or tea with toasted pound cake. She was more than an Aunt. She was my friend. I know she understands why it’s taken me so long to publicly pay respects. It’s something very difficult for me. I will always cherish those days. Much love to my cousins Anne and June and their families. And especially to my Uncle Buddy who just loved to tease the heck out of me. God Bless you all.
