I will always carry the memories from all of the years growing up with her as my Aunt. I do remember the wonderful meals she liked to cook, the candy she would always make on Christmas and other holidays. I loved helping her make popcorn balls and on Christmas we would string together popcorn and other things to decorate the house and tree. She also never seemed to miss the chance to send out a card on a birthday or Christmas. I spent a lot of time with Josh when he lived with her and Ron and I will always cherish those memories. To Lori, Brad and Perry, I am very sorry for your loss. I have you in my thoughts and prayers
