    My dearest Auntie Patticake – although you are now gone from this world you are forever in our hearts! You are loved beyond measure. We suffer a great loss as you have been so precious to so many. I thank you for my cousins as they were a crucial part of my childhood! First cousins are truly First Friends. I thank you for the love you showered on me as a child. My continued success was driven by your words of encouragement and support. Most especially I admired the unconditional love that you shared with my mother. That bond will never be broken. I am comforted by the rich experiences we all shared during our summer vacations!
    Quite simply, I Love You now and always. Keep watch over us until we meet again. Your niece,
