    Prayers here Auntie Luna. You will sadly be missed. It is very heartbreaking. I was hoping one day we could all see each again now that the covid numbers went down. The last time I saw you was a little more than 10 years ago when you, Uncle Burt & Neil came over for your visit here in California. Now you are up in the beautiful heavens above reunited your siblings, parents and of course everyone one my dad’s side of the family. May you rest in paradise & it will be then til we meet again. Lots of Love, Audrey from California
