What a special, special lady. She could always light up a room. What a reunion there is going on in heaven!

Nice picture of Aunt Effie! My memory: When I was 16 I borrowed a suitcase from her for a school trip to Chicago. As a thank you gift I gave her a bone china set of dinosauers. A few years ago she returned them to me with a hand written note that said "I took good care of these for over 40 years, now it's your turn. I hope you like them as much as I did." That made me cry! Rest in peace.

"Woody" and Shirley, thinking of you at this time of sadness. I did not know your mother but I am sure she must have been a wonderful person. Thoughts and prayers are sent your way.

I remember her smile and her laugh. Unforgettable! My husband and I want to express our sympathy to Aunt Effie's entire family.
