  • Missy Newsom Blanton To all in Illinois, My sincerest sympathy.. It's such a time of emotions. I have a soap dish Aunt Jean gave me when I was 10 years old ( let's just say, "some time ago...") It reminds me of her almost daily-her kind, but straight forward nature and so soft spoken. She gave me a pattern for "the Hungry Caterpillar" years ago. We used it as a family and now it's enjoyed a the Episcopal children's centers around N E FL. This is to say her gifts keep giving! Aunt Jean and Uncle Beau have left each of you with a unique part of them. Trusting you find joy and comfort in the memories and in things you say and do that remind you of them. Love and prayers to you all, Missy and family
