I have been so blessed to have my special Aunt Corrine all these years - As a new baby in 1940 she helped raise me as my Mother was in a hospital for three years. We bonded at a very early age and I have known I could depend on her to be in my "corner" and she knew the same of me. Bless her sweet soul, she baby sat my Brad and Ranita and Mary Lynn, Kenneth and Gayla spoiled them. She had some difficult days in the nursing home and our Lord knew he had a much better place for her in heaven. I will miss her so much,she was my rock after I lost my parents. Rest in peace my sweet one. I can see stars in your crown for your love of our Lord and Saviour.

Mama Corinne was the best babysitter ever! I have many fond memories of her when she watched me and my brother in the 1970s.
