She once told me i had a great voice that should sing more. She heard me in Church and VBS when they had the end thing they always had. I looked at her told her ” A cat fighting its way out of a brown paper bag sounded better then me”. she said she loved hearing me sing. I thought of her as a second Mother and she will be missed and we keep her in our hearts and mind. May she always be an Angel looking out for those she loved. love you Aunt Kona.
