    Aunt Fannie certainly broke the mold and set the bar way too high for the rest of us. What a wonderful spirit she had that is still with us. I can still hear her laugh and see her smile that cheers me. We all loved and appreciated her so much. Just like all the strong Stromatt women, she made you laugh but didn’t hesitate to speak her mind. I can only hope we can fly as high for as long.
