Elsie gave me an Advent Calendar as she always does.  Christmas and New Year will be much sadder this year because we no longer had Mrs Young to share it with.  I loved Alice very much and I miss her very much .  She was always so very kind to me and I learned to be gentle with my kisses.  I will always remember her as the bird lady and I signed her name 'bird' + 'lady'.
