I am so sorry we missed the funeral. The directions we had were way off on the time it took to get there. We were at the church, but we did not see anyone we knew, so we left. I loved Aunt Fay and I know I will see her again! Maybe she will let me brush her hair, like she did when I was little. I loved the pictures and walked down memory lane with her.
