  10. My aunt was a steadfastly loving person in my life. Her appreciation for simple pleasures helped to cultivate gratitude for these things in my own life. I cherish the days we shared together, and I will always remember her laugh and the sparkle in her eye. She loved being loved by her family and friends. I send condolences to my cousins, and all of her family and friends who will miss her.
