I remember when I (Sissybug) and Wes ( Abe, that’s what aunt Helen called him), the day of our wedding she brought a butcher knife to cut the wedding cake and the hole time during the ceremony she it by my mom and slapped that knife in her hand and she was having so much fun scaring the crap out of Wes. She was my favorite aunt and Wes loved her so much, we loved her dearly. Now she’s at home with her mom, dad and some of her brothers and sisters and other family members and I can see her and Wes laughing talking about the time Wes and Hoppy chested us in rummy. Aunt Helen I will always miss you and remember all the time I spent with you and you always mad blackjack bread for me
