My condolences to the family on your loss. I always, before she passed, enjoyed stopping to visit with Gr-Aunt Pearl & Cricket. They gave me great stories and information on the Nida side of our family. From the very first time that I met them, they made me feel like I had known them my entire life. May God give you the strength to ease your burden of your loss. My prayers are with you.
