I always enjoyed visiting with Great Aunt Vergaline. She had a wonderful sense of humor. One time she said during a visit, “I looked in the obituary to see if my name was in it.” Dad (Garold Borton) would take me to visit her and we always enjoyed spending time with her. I will have the memory of the sound of her sweet voice in my mind for as long as I live. We loved to play cards with her and Great Aunt Frances who lived next door to. Great memories.
