I am one of N.P.'s girls. Me, Jenny, Pauline and James Larry came to visit her 3 times last year. It was the highlight of the year for us. We hadn't seen her for years and it truly filled our hearts with love for her all over again. We brought pictures of her brother's and sister's, and she knew we were family. She loved it, and so did we.I know that I am partial, but she was truly one of the most beautiful, Aunt's a niece could ever have (inside and out). We grieve that we didn't have more time with her. We have lost a most precious woman. Our sympathy and prayers are with you all. Again, so sorry that we can't attend the service. Love, Alice, Jenny, Pauline and Jim.
