Somehow I know our paths will cross again, I don't know where, I don't know when. Somewhere far off in some distant place once again I'll see that dazzling smile upon your beautiful face. Memories of you I hold, you are in my heart you are in my soul. I will miss you each and every day, although you are gone the beauty of your spirit remains. I think of you I laugh I cry but for now my aunt farewell good-bye.

A beautiful life
A remarkable woman
I was blessed to have you in my life I'm honored to have called you my aunt.
