Aunt Jeannie, I will miss you so much every time I came home for a visit since I moved away every year maybe 2 or 3 times I came to visit I made sure I came to see you. . Is so sad and heartbreaking that January would be the last time I hugged and kissed you and said goodbye and see u in the summer which the summer isnt going to come. Open your wings and soar and watch over my Uncle and my cousins let them know your there. Love you till we meet again
