I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Foon passing! She was always so kind to me. I have so many memories of going to the store after school. I loved the slushes with the ice cream. At the family reunions we always caught up and somehow she ended up sharing recipes with me. I am sorry for your loss! I know she will be greatly missed!

So very sorry to see that Mrs.Jue passed away. The Jue's were our neighbors in Daffin Heights. Mrs. Jue always called me "Judy" and when I would tell her my name is Julie she would say, "I know but I like Judy better" such a wonderful family. It was great growing up with Tommy, Allen, Rodney and Denise. Although Denise was a little one when the family moved". Raymond and Mae Jue were such kind and loving people. Rest in peace.
