    I have not seen you for years and years but I loved when we were young and spent many gatherings at Aunt Katie and Uncle Franks and Grandma McNews. Such great times. It’s a shame when we have to say goodbye to our loved and most cherished loved ones but at the same time if we know the Lord it is awesome what awaits us in Heaven. Thanks for the memories…RIP
