Amy and Ricky: What a wonderful lady your Mom was. Aunt Emma and Uncle Bill were truly family to me and I fondly remember all the great times on Ohio St and then off Georgetown when I was growing up. How your Dad always cleared our driveway in the winter before we were even up for school or all the cooking/baking your Mom did for us when my Dad passed away. My Mom was lucky to have her as a life long friend and "sister" and I am one lucky girl to have had her as an Aunt. Only "sisters" would have their daughters share a name ("Emma's Amy","Ellie's Amy", "your Amy", "my Amy") I thought of her often and I will miss her. Love, Amy Udovich-Henderson
