  • Sharon, Bobbie & Family,
    Wow! How very sad I am about Aunt Janet. As I watched the film on here I couldn’t help but cry. It brought back so many memories of all of you & the good times we had at Aunt Dot Blackford’s, sitting around her kitchen table laughing, drinking coffee, telling stories of days gone by. Now, all of those wonderful people are gone from my life, but will never be for gotten, Aunt Janet & the way she always called me “sweetie”, Uncle Bob, calling me “kiddo”, & yes Aunt Dot with her for ever endless cups of coffee. We all will have the memories of them tucked in our hearts forever. My heart aches for ALL of you. I Love you all. Know that you all have my deepest sympathy.
