I was so fond of Aunt Mary. She had so many children. I Loved visiting her. She always made me feel special. The last time I saw her was at my Dad's funeral. I really should have kept in touch. Come Tuesday of next week I will once again be at Highland cemetery when we bury my dear Aunt Berta Penick, my mother's sister.She was 87 yrs young.I'm feeling a bit alone. I would love to hear from Pam.
