    Sherry and family, I'm so sorry to hear about Aunt Pinky. I've thought about her alot over the years. I know it's hard to let our loved ones go, especially after just losing Uncle Norm, but I know it must give you some comfort knowing she is finally at peace. Love, Diane and family

    Wishing Lillian's family peace. We knew Lillian (aka Pinky) as our neighbor in Bay City. She was a real treasure and spoke lovingly of you.
