Dearest Aunt Yola.. You were one of a kind.. So determined and independent. Our love for you will be never ending. “Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.” Enjoyed all the times we spent together. When I was young you were a large part of my life for you were my mentor. Now that I am older, you have been a bigger part of my life. You were at my graduation from High school and college, at my Retirement from teaching, performed my wedding and have been with me in every other huge event in my life. Love you dear one and will miss you more than anyone knows. I miss our daily conversations from afar but I know you are in Heaven now with angels wings that you so desire.
