Aunt Daisy was a wonderful woman. From the time I met her in 1973 she always made me feel like family. I have many wonderful memorys at Deer Island on Cedar creek Lake. She and Ralph was at the hospital with me all day long the day On Christmas day 1980 waiting on the birth of 3 lb Jonn later that night. Daisy loved all of her family. Will miss you Aunt Daisy
