    Among my fondest memories as a child were of visiting Aunt Jo’s house, playing in the pool, eating wonderful food. I have no memory of her without a smile on her face. She managed to procure the autographs of my favorite sports heroes as many were her neighbors.

    Eventually, as I grew older, I discovered the wonder of exploring the depths of a mind well read and literate. Heaven truly has been made a better place with the addition of this treasure.
