    It is with a very saddened heart that I write about my Aunt Sis and send my love and hugs to the rest of the family that loved her too. She had an infectious smile and a laugh that I can still hear when I shut my eyes. The oldest of nine Study children and looked up to by all that knew her. She loved her all her family and I don’t remember her speaking ill of anyone. She was a Study treasure and will be with us in our hearts forever and ever. Rest easy up on that hill Aunt Sis, I will visit you when I can. Love, your niece, Linda
