Dear Aunt Annette, You were always so sweet to me, and were a great God-Mother too! You always remembered to send me a birthday card, right up to the last one. Thanks for letting me stay overnight and hang out with Sue when we were growing up. We had such fun! Love you always, Necie

Dearest Annette, You have been a part of my life since I was six. I'm so glad I wrote, and you enjoyed, the long letter of loving times we've spent together over the years as sisters-in-law. I still have and will keep forever the last remaining teacup from the set you and my brother gave me for Christmas when I was a little girl. I am missing you already. Lovingly, Linda
