  1. Aunt Laura was my favorite. When I was growing up, I will fondly remember she was always so funny. I regret not keeping in touch all these years, But I always asked about her (and Uncle Al)when I spoke with Dad. I will make a point to see you all in July, as we are going to make the trip North to pay respects to Dad, and now his sister, Laura. Again, I am sorry for your loss. My special love to Uncle Al.
