We said our final farewells to my sweet Aunt Star today. What precious memories she leaves behind for all of us that knew and loved her dearly. Ill never forget her unfaltering faith; her ability to always see the best in others and her willingness to love unconditionally. When I look to the heavens and pick out the brightest, most beautiful Star, I know it will be her shining down on each of us. I refuse to say good bye only Ill see you again on Heavens golden shores. Love you Aunt Star ... always and forever.
