My heartfelt condolences to my cousins and their families. I have loving and fond memories of Aunt Edna. Visiting with her when I was down to see Nan Ellis. My trips with mom to Yarmouth. We did not know that visit in the fall would be the last time mom and sis would see each other. Mom and sis enjoying that thanksgiving meal together. The ladies sitting in the car talking away , each with a bag of chips while I walk around the Yarmouth light house. Remembering the picnic with the lobster sandwiches. The memory I hold close to my heart is Aunt Edna and mom sitting at the her kitchen table, wood stove going, cup of tea and the ladies talking away. I was blessed to hear their stories. Picture from a 2010 visit.

Nan Ellis, mom and Aunt Edna are together
Love Your Cousin Karen
