    June was my favorite aunt of all time. She was the sweetest, funniest, kindest person I have ever known. Aunt June had the warmest smile and made the best upside down pizza when I was a kid. My thoughts and prayers go out to Uncle Cliff, Jim, Bruce and Jason and their families. Rest assured, your mom/wife has a front row seat in heaven next to Grandma Plautz. Love to you all. Angie
