Aunt Nifty was very kind, and genuinely cared about others. Aunt, thank you for always having your door open to the "Trevose Ashtons" whenever we came to visit Grandmom and Grandpop. Thanks for bringing smiles to our faces and hostessing us in Virginia. Although alot of time has passed, these wonderful memories I'll hold near and dear to my heart. Rest Easy Aunt Nifty, until we meet again. Prayers, and hugs to her family, friends and furbaby ...with love, Luanne Ashton-DiPaolo and Joseph DiPaolo
