There will always be a special place in my heart for Aunt Kitty. She is my mother's sister and was married to my Dad's brother, and it was through Aunt Kitty and Uncle Al that my parents met.

She was absolutely devoted to Saint Joseph, and I know that when she died, he was there to meet her. Rest in peace Aunt Kitty.
