    My precious Aunt went home to be with the Lord. I will miss her and I love her so much! I feel she was climbing the stair step to Heaven and looked back and said to my precious brother come with me, you don't need that cancer anymore. Praying for my precious cousins. Love you Jimmy, Kathy and family.
