I will surely miss her visits to Delaware. She always reminded me of her mother Aunt Marie . Now they are back together again with the rest of the family that have gone to heaven. She even sounded like Aunt Marie when she talked.It seems like yesterday that Aunt Marie went to heaven it was in 1999 wow time goes so fast. You all will be in my prayers. God bless you love Frank. Look to Jesus he will help you through this sad time..

Angie and glad I at least got to give her a hug and kiss before surgery. She was such a delight. I am still in a state of shock. I pray for those two grandbabies who I heard so much about. I hope they hold many precious memories of their grandma. She will be missed by all at Bryan where she volunteered....
