    Aunt Gerry and Uncle Francis were always my favorite, they were “fun”. Always taking a picnic and going to the beach. “little Gerry” as she was called [their first daughter] and I were not just cousins we were best friends growing up, until we moved to Florida when I was 14, broke my heart when I had to move and leave her. Aunt Gerry often had us over on Sunday nights after church for a snack. They lived on Lakeshore Drive in Muskegon at the time. I loved going to their house. I know her, Uncle Francis, my mom/dad and our sisters are having a family reunion. Praying for you Sandi, thanks for staying in touch.
