    My sweet Aunty Nancy, my Godmother, my friend…I will never forget the sacrifices you made for little old me. I don’t remember swimming in your sink, but I’m sure glad I did, because it made me your Little Frog. I’ve never known life without you, but am forever grateful I had you for 53 years. I’ll forever treasure the last kiss you blew me and the last words we spoke in person. Run along now. I love you more.
