    My precious Aunt Bambi, I will miss you tremedously. You have been such a rock for me over the years. You were one of the strongest women I have ever known. My heart is broken but I know you are in God’s hands now so how can I be sad about that? I know you are dancing with Uncle Tony and having a good time with all our loved ones that went before you. Please kiss my mom for me. I will never forget you and your love for me as long as I live. Happy trails to you until we meet again. Your loving nephew, Terry.
