  4. I have such fond memories of the times I spent at your mom's and dad's home when I was younger. Then, as an adult she always managed to come when we were going through hard times with mom's and dad's illnesses. Although she has moved on, she will always be remembered and share a place in my heart as she was truly a good sister, a great lady, and a wonderful aunt.

  6. Aunt Henrietta meant so much to me and my family. I remember so many good things about her from my childhood and as an adult. Her positive attitude and her love always made one want to be around her. We loved her so much and will miss her, but we are comforted believing that she is with God and at peace.
