I have so many woderful memories ,as a young nephew aunt cleah and her girls would spend summers with our family , we would camp out at the lake , pluck chickens, the girls just loved there legg necklaces, she was like a second mom with added sisters , but being the only boy i was treated special, but it did not end there , her and uncle jack let me stay with them for about 6 months when i was 18, still nothing changed she went out of her way to treat me special, her love and grace was so great, even with me being a pain at times , but she always agreed it was the girls fault , (LOL) but those were such great memories , i will miss that crazy laugh , head kicking back laugh. Until we meet again in heaven i will love you always , Jamie...
