  • "Aunt Theresa, we will never forget the memories that were made when we were children. We all had more fun coming up north and playing in Flat Rock with all our cousins. Visiting with you and Uncle Sonny. You will be truly missed here but they are all looking forward to your arrival up there. I can just see all the chatter between sisters. Lol! Love, your niece ."
