To you all present at my Gams funeral, my hugs and my love are with you.
I had a secret for my family..........
I bought tickets to visit over Thanksgiving, last month... Was to be a surprise, but I have decided to tell it.
With love, hugs and kisses, I will see you all soon!

  Sorry to hear that Aunt Skeeter passed away. She was truly  wonderful Aunt who had some very interesting antiques.  The one thing that I will always remember when I came to her house, she had a picture of Jesus on the kitchen wall and whenever you came into the kitchen ~ NO matter where you walked Jesus's eyes always followed you.
As a child it always frightened me.  Wish I could be there to see all my cousins.  You all made lots of great memories for me and my family.
Love to all~!  Anne

My sincere conlolences to all of the family.
My prayers are for you and especially Aunt Skeeter. My favorite
memories are of summer at Lake Erie, with my Mother and Dad
and Uncle Gerald and Aunt Skeet!  What fun we had and how we all enjoyed it ( I can't remember everyone but it was a lot of family- brothers and sisters, etc.)
She was a big part of my life, especially the first 12 years, then
we moved away.  God bless you Aunt Skeeter.
Love to All,  
Jeannette Mae Copeland(daughter of Paul and Jean Copeland)
