Aunt Zilla is one precious Aunt! She was like a second mama (even making us break our own switch). I will always treasure her smile, love, Saturday Night sandwiches and candy from Uncle James. She made the best banana cake ( I never got the recipe). I will always love her because she loves my mama like a sister. I will always miss you Aunt Zillie but I know you are rejoicing and all of you will be waiting for Mama. I love you!
