Stormie Jean and all the family, I am saddened to learn of Aunt Eleanor’s passing. She was my last surviving aunt, and though we always lived miles apart, I have so many fond memories of her, your dad and you and “Little Jim.” Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and the days ahead. Sending you much love from Florida.

My computer had some problems. So Gary and I missed Aunt Eleanor passing. Aunt Eleanor was my last Aunt. I will miss her laughing. To my cousins, Stormie, Tina, and Butch, I feel your sadness. My thoughts are with you.
