    Praying for Our Family! I remember the pre dawn calls on Holidays. To Rattle the pots & pans. Growing up we would sit on Aunt Mickey’s steps, while you created the stories about “The Little People in the forest.” You had so much character & love. No matter what if asked “How are you?” You were always “Fantastic”
    Love you always
