  1. Growing up when we would take trips to Illinois I loved our visits to my Uncle Jewel and Aunt Lucille’s house.
    Aunt Lucille always had amazing dinners but the best part was the pies she made for desert. My Dad and Uncle Jewel would sit at the kitchen table and always have a second piece of pie before going to bed.
    On hot summer nights we would sit out in the driveway and Carl and I would take turns riding on his green peddle tractor. I still think he got a longer turn than I did.
    I will always love you and cherish my memories of Aunt Lucille.
    Rest In Peace
