My beloved Aunt Jenny had a heart of gold and she passed this legacy to her daughters. She will always have a special place in my heart. I will never forget the delicious goodies she would bake and bring when she visited with my Uncle Jimmy. She was so loved by all of us and will be greatly missed. I extend my deepest sympathies to all of the family.
