An angel you have become, but clearly always have been. Thanks for all the memories, Auntie Boots... from our trips up north when we were kids, sleepovers at your house, playing cards, sharing beers, and for always being there. Your warm smile, loving embrace, and contagious laugh will be missed. Rest peacefully. Love and hugs until we meet again.
