Our loss, Heaven's gain! On January 5, Heaven gained a very special, sweet,loving Angel, whom I was so blessed and privileged to call my Aunt! From our childhood, when she taught me to skip rope to many years later when we shared so many wonderful and blessed times with both our families I am so grateful! My heart will always be filled with so many happy and blessed memories we shared together! Gone but never forgotten! To Dan, Don, and Cindy, Thank You for sharing her with me! Much Love, Nancy
