The following tribute perfectly sums up what everyone lucky enough to ever know our mom will remember:
Aunt Ree. There was room for everyone at her table, and when you took a seat, adventures would always begin. Lively conversation, delicious food, loud and contagious laughter, sometimes games like Dominos and Farkle or puzzles, and definitely a little good natured sibling bickering if Aunt Ree and Dad were together. It wasn’t her house and it wasn’t her table that created so many happy memories. It was her. She was so welcoming, fun and loving and her family and friends have always been her world.
Aunt Ree has unexpectedly taken a seat at the table in Heaven, undoubtedly with Uncle George, Uncle Kevin, my Mom and Gamie and Papa. When I feel sad I think about how much fun that table in the sky must be. Fortunately, love never dies. Eskimo kisses to Heaven, Aunt Ree. Love you always.
We love you forever and always and look forward to the day we will all be together at that table again!
