  2. Jan & Dave,

  3. My prayers go out to all of my cousins. She was one of my favorite aunt’s and a wonderful person who was always so considerate of others. I will miss talking with her by phone late at night (she was a night owl just like my Dad, her brother). Now she is with him and of course, my Uncle Gerry, my husband, my mother and my nephew. They’ll be showing a lot of old-time movies up there along with playing golf. You will be truly missed, Aunt Helen.
