Naomi Clory Wow, I still can’t believe you’re gone, Auntie. I am truly going to miss you—your sense of humor, your stories about your childhood days, the times we spent laughing whenever I visited you in Chesapeake. Even the last time I saw you, although you weren’t feeling very well, you found strength to make me smile. All in all, I am going to miss you very much! Till we meet again.
