Forever in my heart. I will always be most thankful for all the memories I've had with you through out my life. You've been there every step of the way. Amusement Parks, Bingo, Shopping, Family Picnics, Card Games, Board Games, Puzzles, My 1st movie @ Whitehall Theater, Movies, TV, Birthdays, Graduation, Weddings, my 1st Casino trip. The best Aunt a niece could ever have. The best Great Aunt Leanna & Kara could ever have had. The 1st time Leanna's toes touched grass after you sat her on the blanket in your yard. The best Great Great Aunt to Ariana, & Kenia, whom got to visit occasionally. My favorite memory of all was talking you, my Mom, & Aunt Linda into going to the Haunted House on Streets Run Road, where you kept yelling it got me, it got me, & my Mother yelling it got my purse, it got my purse, & find out in the light your arm was stuck in Mom's purse. I'll never forget that. We had a lot of fun! I will miss figuring out the numbrix with you on Sundays. I will miss you Aunt Karen. Heaven has a new Angel.
