Memories Timeline


  1. You will be missed Aunt Paul, especially your many talents. No one ever left your house hungry and if they did it was their own fault. I’m glad that you met my my children and they had the opportunity to get to know you even if it was not very long. I’ll always remember your being busy doing something crafty and having kids around in some form or fashion.

    I now wish you peace and rest and may you enjoy being reunited with the rest of the family. So, craft on and crochet on Aunt Paul and cook on, let the angels enjoy now what we did for so many years.
