    Every time I see a taco I think of my Aunt Sally (Sarah). I know that sounds odd. I never ate a taco until I was lucky enough to eat dinner with my cousin Dave. She made something(a taco) everyone knows today but was unusual at the time. My Aunt Sally was what I called her. I found out later that she preferred to be called Sarah her real name. I don’t know for certain how I started calling her Aunt Sally. I do know I loved her, my Uncle Howard and their entire family.

    I pray my cousins have great peace and can see how blessed they are. I used to be very jealous of them. They were all so good looking and smart; I felt like I was so small and stupid in comparison as probably all young people do.

    I loved Aunt Sarah’s smile. It is burned in my brain. All my love to you all.
