2011-10-10 22:21:52This is so hard for me to believe! Last time I visited you we laughed and talked about everything. Aunt Elizabeth just know that I love you and will miss you. Our last visit and talk will have to be my last memories of you, being that I relocated to Jersey! I will never forget you! My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you my family! I Love all of you and stay strong for each other.
