I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my Aunt Cleo. Virginia Shay was my mother, and younger sister of Cleo. They were close and were good friends, as well as sisters. It has been 20 years since my mother passed away, and in those years, it was always comforting to hear from Aunt Cleo. I am glad God gave her long life and a love for God and for family. She has been reunited with her parents and with her sisters & brother. How beautiful Heaven must be!
