Aunt May was kindhearted and loved her children and grandchildren very much, in fact, she was good to everyone. She has befriended many a person, and of you went to her home and admired her little trinkets she would five them to you before you left. She loved flowers and shrubs, and her yard was very beautiful. She will be missed greatly.
