    Dear Aunt Jewel,

    You shared your life, your warm smile, your love for Jesus and your love for family with each of us. You made sure that we always felt welcome in your home or just being with you and you never failed to ask ” how are you doing and how is your family” .
    You made a house a home and Beecher is so much in love with you for all you gave to his life and those around you.
    You will be missed so much but you will always be loved, so until we can meet again, enjoy that special family reunion in heaven.

    Love and miss you – Ronnie
