This is just kind of a note to Aunt Viola to show the appreciation for all this random acts of kindness over the years. Thank you for the diaper bags, booties, hugs, and kisses, the apple butter you took to mon, the plate full of goodies from family reunion you took to the nursing home when she was there. For being such a great sister in law to my dad the past few years. Love you lots and you are missed. Your children are loving and kind. Love, your neice, SUE
