I'm so sorry for your loss. We all loved Aunt Poochie. I don't know if you all remember me, I'm Aunt Jane's daughter. I haven't seen you all in years, but please know my prayers are with you. Anyone who was lucky enough to know Aunt Poochie loved her. She touched many lives. I know I'll always remember my week ends at her home. Love you all, and I'd love to hear from all of you. Take care of yourselves and be there for one another.
