Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Dear Todd, Spencer, and Holly,
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I know how difficult it is to lose a parent.
I am very glad I was able to see Gerrie this summer. Of course, we talked about some great memories on Muchmore and of our dogs. We both shared a love of animals.
Know my thoughts are with you,
I remember you always being up my Aunt Fayes on many occasions. We are going to miss you.
I will miss Aunt Sissie dearly. She was such a wonderful and fun person. I will cherish the fond memories of spending time with her in Cincy and her visits to see my family in Michigan. She was lively and fun and we had such wonderful times together. My thoughts and prayers are with Tood, Spencer and Holly and their families. Rest in Peace Aunt Sissie, you were one of a kind.
