Oh auntie Vonnie, you were such a huge part of my life. You taught me so many things. All the ceramics you painted, raggedy ann dolls made and even cabbage patch dolls. I have treasured them since the day I got them. Our holidays together and the trips we made are etched in my memory forever!!! I will miss you so much but I know you are with your sister and mom and dad. Rest in eternal peace LaVonne. I love you!!!

There are no words to express my sadness. You were always like a second mom to me. All the summers spent at the lake, all the Christmas's spent together, all the birthdays, and other holidays. My only happy thought is that my mom now has her best friend to visit with again drink some tea together and works on your ceramics ladies. Thank you auntie for always being there when I was growing up.
