    My dearest Auntie May I remember. The years have come and gone but you have remained and will remain in my heart always. I remember the very first “Nancy Drew” trilogy and how it spiked my curiosity and my love of books. I remember the “ballet recitals” in your living room and how much it ignited my soul and taught me to dance no matter who is watching. I remember sharing stories “around the christmas tree” and being inspired to write. Most of all I remember your laughter, your smile and your zest for life! Your spirit will live on in my soul, thank-you for blessing this world. To Uncle Jack, John, Grandpa, Nanny and everyone who greives with me, my heart and prayers are with all of you.
