Uncle Leslie and girls; I am sorry to hear about Aunt Lanora passing away. God bless you during this time of sadness and thank you Leslie for visiting my mom when she was in the hospital the week or so before she passed. It meant a great deal for her to see her brother there! I wish I could be there to give you support, but my memories of Lanora making the great cakes with the delious chocolate frosting she would make for those cakes, that I had to always savory that frosting for the very last! But for some reason, Uncle Leslie, someone always was hiding it from me! So remember the good times and it will help to remember her smile and laughter that we had while us girls played!! She was a great cook and she will be missed by me! Take care of yourselves!!
