    I was sorry to hear that Aunt Sandy passed away. I haven’t seen her since my Aunt Ann’s funeral in 2009, but we’ve exchanged Christmas cards every year and I will think of her fondly and with sadness this Christmas. My condolences to Lee and Rob and their families. I know you were her world. <3
