My 99 year old aunt died Monday. She was a remarkable woman, who enjoyed life to the fullest. She was my father’s sister, and now there is only one sibling out of the ten left.
Today, I am heading to South Georgia, where I will go visit Aunt Eloise in a nursing home. She won’t know me any more, but that is OK. I sure know and love her.
And then tonight there will be a visitation for this special lady, shown above at her 99th birthday party this past July, with the Celebration of Life being conducted tomorrow.
It will be a happy/sad occasion when we see long-time friends and family, reminisce about the past, and promise not to wait so long to see each other again. Then life gets in the way, and everyone gets too busy, until the next time one of our members is lost to us. And then we gather again.
Thanks for all the ‘apple salads’ you made this young gal when we came visiting. You always made me feel special and loved.
Rest in peace, Aunt Nene. I love you, and miss you already.
