    My Most Favorite Crochet Aunt Ever, I know we lost contact for some reason but I am so thankful that I called you before you left us. We talked about everything like we didn’t miss a beat and I was so looking forward to seeing you again. Love you and miss seeing your smile face. My crochet partner is gone for now but I’m sure she will be waiting for me to come home and get started again. Love you your number 21, Teza

    I will always remember our last conversation. It meant the world to me to know how much you loved me still and you never forgotten me and I you. It’s been years and I still remember the fun times we had as a little girl.
