  1. To my Aunt Ethel- I will always remember what a kind person you were to me when I was a child to the concern you and Uncle Art had for us going through Mark’s treatment for Leukemia. You always were checking on people to see how they were doing. I’m sorry my Mom and Dad weren’t here for you but they are on in age and in Florida. My whole childhood was great because you were in it. Thanks for being a great Aunt. Love, Karin Hagenstein McGiveron
