Aunt Susie,
It has been a long time since we have seen each other, but it seems like yesterday, that I was at your house for dinner as a kid. Sending you my love. I know you will miss him, but accept the support of your family and think about all the good times. I think of you often and will continue to keep you in my thoughts. Barbie
