    Aunt Gertrude,

    Thank you for being such a beautiful, inviting, warm person. I will certainly miss you but I know that you are in a better place and that you are reunited with all of our loved ones that have passed on. I am so envious of that but I know we all be reunited again someday. Thank you for always being there to talk to. I love you and will miss you.

    Kevin L. Hamilton
