"Vange" always use to call me "Dickie Boy".....She was a kind and gentle person who loved spending time with family and friends. She will be missed but not forgotten....

Aunt Vange was a wonderful person who was blessed with many years of life to help people, which she did! She will always be with me in my heart. I know Jesus is holding her close and thanking her for her years of service to God. Her cheerful face and disposition will be missed.
