Aunt Doris and Uncle Aubrey were among our most favorite people. And of course, the kids and I grew up together. Both of us were so appreciative and grateful for her difficult visit to see her dying sister just three years ago next week. But the visit gave us the wonderful opportunity to catch up and reconnect, and for that we will always be grateful. Our hearts and minds are with you all.
