I will miss my Aunt Teenie. I will feel her love forever and I will cherish my wonderful memories of her. She was so dear to me, she always made me feel special. I love her with all my heart. I know God will help her loved ones as the days goes by and they miss her, that he will comfort them. I'm so thankful my Aunt Teenie was in my life. Thank you God for this very special lady. Love, Your niece, Brenda
