    Ron and Kammy we would like to extend our deepest sympathy. I will miss Aunt Hattie dearly. I have very fond memories of the summer I spent with her. Sittong on the porch doing crossword puzzle with her and just talking and enjoying each others company. She was such a sweet lady and was smart and quick witted. I loved her very much and may she rest in peace.
