When thinking about Aunt Rosalynd, I always recall summertime in Minnesota, by the lake. Our visits were always a high point of the year. Farewell Rosalynd, until we meet again.

My grandmother was the most selfless person I have ever known. She touched more lives than I think she ever knew. She will be dearly missed.
