Have many great memories of my aunt. She always treated us like princesses when we visited. I wish she would of been closer to Canada, I could of visited more often. May she rest in peace beside my uncle which I also loved very much and her beloved son Denis who was also a good cousin and good friend. Love all of you forever!
