Relation: Aunt

Ruth, Gerry and Linda,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this time. Having just lost my mom, I know how difficult it is to lose a mother, friend, and confidante. I remember the lovely wedding cake that Aunt Flo made for me when I got married and I still have the rope Christmas wreath she made for me many years ago. I will cherish my memories of visiting the farm and her excellent cooking. Hugs to all, Jennifer.
