Going way back to the early 70"s I can remember my Aunt Lee and I going to the Rollerama Skating Rink on Hamburg Street, it was the first and the last as my Aunt Lee fell and hurt her back...When I was alittle girl my Aunt Lee got me for my birthday a cinderalla doll with the cinderalla watch....I wish I still had that...Aunt Lee was my godmother who never forgot my birthday as a little girl but when I reached 16, it stopped as Aunt Lee told me I was a young lady now. I will miss Aunt Lee and know now that she is with Uncle Larry who she loved more then anything in the world. Her two children Lisa and David was her joy and greatly loved. Rest in peace Aunt Lee...
