Aunt Lydia Mae always loved unconditionally. I can remember as a child when things were chaotic Aunt Lydia Mae would always try to help make sense of the craziness. I was able to see so much of her in my Dad. The Daniel's are definitely known for their "fiesty" spirit, loyalty to their families and love!!! Another generation in the heavens to watch and guide us.....
