Aunt Margie Spinelli was an amazing soul. She always cared about others and prayed for them. She was my son, Gunner's, god mother and his third "grandmother". This April she sent Gunner a beautiful and loving note. She said she missed him and wished she could get well so she could squirt him with the hose and play checkers with him. She signed the letter "Grandmother Spinelli" and included 5 one dollar bills as a gift for him. Gunner loved her so much and is sad that he did not see her before she passed. But we know she is watching over him and all her loved ones from heaven. We miss you Aunt Margie but we know you are with us always.
Our condolences and love to Pete, George, Tom, Christine and their families.
