    My Dear Sweet Niece Clarine, you were the first one born to have made me an Aunt for the first time , I was barely 2 yrs., old myself. Maybe it was you all this time that made me love babies so much and want to be a Mommy. I remember the first time that you bought Ronnie to Manistique to meet Grama June and Grampa Dick you were so excited to have us all meet him, from the time you met Ronnie back then through the rest of your married life I don’t think that you could slip a piece of paper between the two of you, that’s how close of a loving couple you were, than came the babies , Calvin was the first Great Grandchild and Great Nephew in our family . Clarine you are(we’re) An Amazing Wife, Mother, Grandma, Sister , Daughter , Niece and Friend. My Sweet Angel you are Missed and Loved by so many ❤️
