My heart goes out to Terri & Sherrie, Christie, & Danny, my beloved cousins. Your mom babysat me, just as I baby sat you, when you were young. She taught me how to "iron" my hair before flat-irons were invented and how to apply make-up; blue mascara and blue, shiny eye shadow! LOL! She was so much fun and always took good care of me and gave me a place to stay when I needed one. I will never forget her and I am very happy she was my Aunt! I am very saddened to hear of her passing. My love to you all... Janice
