    It is May 19 Aunt Ova, still brokenhearted. I will miss our gatherings and gigglings at the kitchen table.
    You are now with your family in heaven. You always had a special place in my heart. You were like a second mother to me.

    I love you dearly.

    Avis prayers with you and I am so so sorry.

    Love Linda, – Your niece
