    Dear Donna Kay & family, I was so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. When I was little I thought she was my aunt, not my cousin. Thought you were my cousin. I was grown before I knew the difference. I always loved going to her house down on Swan creek, loved that little rock house. My deepest sympathy to you all. We will all miss her very much.
