I am heartbroken that we could not have our Auntie around just a bit longer. Honestly there is no long enough in our opinion. I will never forget her kind and nurturing ways that always made you feel loved unconditionally for exactly who you are. I still have the sound of her laugh in my head and hope it will remain for years to come. Auntie was funny and would sing one of her favorite songs to us when we were adolescents (You are my Sunshine!). Truly she was my sunshine and I hope she knows that. I love and will miss you always Auntie! I hope to reunite with you and we will sing your favorite song together and eat Trader Joe's coffee ice cream and chocolate mint stars!!
