My heart goes out to Uncle Gary, Jeri, Dean, Mona and their families. I have so many memories of Aunt Janet. Spending summers at their house. She made the best fried shrimp. Camping at Leakey, home made ice cream and her home made chocolate sauce. She will be missed. Heaven just received a special angel.
