"June you were truly an amazing person who had a heart of gold. I?ll never forget the summers spent at your house growing up, eating red velvet cake, going shopping at Catos, always having ham salad to eat at the lake or to bring back to college with me or your infectious smile & laugh that always brightened up a room just to bake a few. May you Rest In Peace and live an eternal life of joy in Heaven. Love you always. "
