When I was young we had a family gathering for everything. Birthdays, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas plus any other reason we could think of. My memories of Aunt Fay were of her laughing and playing pinochle. She had so many facial expressions , happy, sad, mad, being the joker, looks of surprise, Just everything. She was my dad’s youngest sister. My memories with all of my family is something I will always treasure. We were just plain lucky as kids to have so much family around us, loving us. Rest in Peace Aunt Fay. You will be missed.
