My Aunt and Godmother was one of the most funloving,kind and remarkable people I have ever known. Nothing gave me more pleasure than seeing my Dads van parked out front of her home every Sunday morning while she and her brother enjoyed coffee together. It was a beautiful ritual between two siblings. Rest in Peace Auntie and give Dad a big hug for me. Patty
