    Dear Aunt Florence.
    While we didn’t see each other much, except for the wonderful summer you spent with my mother also your sister. I loved that you were here. My mom enjoyed your company so much and you got her out to have fun. The two of you together reminded me of two best friends and I know you enjoyed it too. I took you and mom to a concert and when they started you got up with the rest of the crowd dancing and having fun. The smile on my mom’s face as well as mine was delightful. You are a beautiful person who now gets to be with family in heaven the most peaceful place there is. Peace be with you in heaven Aunt Florence. You will be missed and stilled loved by all of us. Thanks be to God!
