    My dear Aunt Mavis, I will always treasure the fun times we had when we got together. You were the behind the scenes instigator of many hilarious shenanigans that were pulled off to perfection.You had the kindest heart and was always the first to protect your nieces and nephews from a most likely warranted scolding from our parents. You were so very supportive of all your children and grandchildren in all their activities, spending countless hours cheering and encouraging them on in their endeavors. You left us way too soon but your loving memory will linger in our hearts forever! Love you! .
