    I’ll always have the fondest of memories of you at family holidays spent together in Oil City, PA. Your desserts were always amazing and brought such joy to everyone. Such wonderful and warm memories. I used to watch you from across the table and was always amazed at how much you looked like your sweet mother Rose. A gentle and kind spirit, Rest in peace… my lovely Aunt. Love, Eric.
