    To my precious Aunt Ethel and her immediate Familia. So very sorry to hear of her passing. In remembrance of her she use to tell me every time that she spent her days crocheting. Asking when was Jess and I ever coming to Lawrence on our motorcycle and stopping by to see her.
    I can still hear her soft laughter and soft spoken voice as she and I went down memory lane.
    My only regret that I never got that one last chance to say once again “ I Love You “ Aunt Ethel!
    I’ll keep you close to my heart and forever in my thoughts!!
    Your niece Mary Aguilera, Omaha Nebraska
