    Aunt Marie, I always talk about my Aunt in Florida every time someone mentions FL. You were always so sweet. I remember the time we took you to the Bird Avery in Pgh on a visit you made when I was a kid. When we got to see you, it was always a pleasure. I know my mom always wished you lived closer and spoke of you very fondly. I know you are at peace now with my mom and some of your brothers and sisters in heaven. I hope your children, granchildren, and great granchildren find peace in knowing that you are now their own personal angel. May God Bless you and your wonderful family. We hope the Steighner family will continue to make it to some of the family picnics. We always enjoy your visits. Love, Karen
