Dear Aunt Ileen and Cheryl,
You both have brought so many memories, laughter and love to our family.
I will miss you Aunt Ileen, always loving to entertain, listen, laugh and be there for me as a child, teen and adult both as an Aunt and Godmother.
I always loved coming across the street, to play with Cheryl and Saundra then later Johnny, having the lunch you would prepare and picking apples for Ted. Holidays were always fun, I do not know how you and my mom handles the Chaos. Saundra left us way to soon and horribly sad, Grandma left us when it was time as did Ted; Johnny also left us too soon. I feel you just knew with God's help when it was time to leave us. It is hard to be sad but rather understanding of your need to leave us, as your memories are so vibrant and alive,
Cheryl, I am sad for the void this leaves as you were able to see your mom's frequent smile and just know she was there with you. I believe she is still with us just in a higher form. I am glad she is there now to see Saundra after so many years apart and to be with Johnny Ted, and my Mom and Dad.
She was loved
You are loved
