    I am so sad that you are gone from us here on earth but I know that you are in a better place now. Thankfully in Heaven you will feel no pain or suffering.  I have a lot of great memories from when I was little with Aunt Glo. I always had fun talking with you, looking at all your elephants, watching soaps in spanish and eating delicious food. Thank you for being there for me.
