  • Aunt kay, I just want to tell you thank you for all the memories that you left me with. As kids we stayed at 209 stroud street ate food played in the park and hit the bakery for the flat cakes on top with the icing.. we took a few bus trips, picked strawberries and apples. You were a fast driver with one arm in the steering wheel all the time. I went with you to pick out your purple neon. You always looked at the bright side of things and had an answer for everything. We as a family will miss you greatly.. love ya..
