    I will always remember how much fun it was to go to Big Sissy's house when we were kids. There was always cousins there to play with and the grown ups were laughing and having fun too. Aunt Sissy was a classy lady and I looked up to her. She was always dressed so nice and loved life to the fullest. I will miss her.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother was a great friend and neighbor to my mother, Mary Strum. May God give you peace in this time of morning.
