The weather is beautiful out we would have been burning these roads up. I miss you and will never forget you. Miss you and LOVE you always.

I'm so sorry to learn of your loss. Please know that you are not alone. God will certainly be with you. He is "the Father of tender mercies" and the "God of all comfort". (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He will soothe your hearts. Hold His promises near to your heart. Please accept my sincere sympathies.

I still cannot believe your gone. I still expect you to call or pull up in the drive way and ask me if i wanna ride with you to Somerset or Corbin or wherever we ended up. We where traveling partners. I remember when we went picking poke salad or just running around to the flea market or something. That is where i get my peace from, knowing that you lived such a good life. Love you Aunt Serie and i will never forget you.
