Many memories mostly family get togethers at homes or sunset park ( camping ) playing horseshoes . She said hold your head up and smile you've got a great head on your shoulders. Never give up keep trying . Ever since I last saw her. I always remember what she said to me. I can smile cuz her smile made my pain and sadness go away. I know she is still with each of us in one way or a other fly high aunty love you.
