"Dear Aunt Tillie,
It's hard to believe a year has passed since you've gone to Heaven - and yes, you used to joke that you hope you'd get in, and we all know it was a shoo-in.  You are forever present in so many times of need, all we have to do is look at your picture on display, and we trust again.  Miss you and love you, Phyllis, Pete and Carolyn DeFonzo"

I love how she lived her life to the fullest and never let the trials and tribulations of life get her down.
