I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I was able to make it there to show my respect for my loving Aunt. I will always cherrish the memories. Memories of her helping me recover from bee stings to lice. I remember the many places she lived. From apartment to houses big and small. Serving meals to her "patients" that lived in her house. To pumping water from the well. Another is the many family gatherings and of course my summer visits spending time together. She was a strong and independent woman.
I will miss her greatly but celebrate her being made whole again and look forward to seeing her again in heaven.
My heart breaks for you all. I know she has been ill for sometime now. As I watched the wonderful video tribute to her I remember so many memories of her with fondness. I was her next door neighbor for a while 25+ years ago she was like my sons' grandma too along with all her own grandbabies. I shared her heartaches and sorrows through losing 3 of her precious kids. Even after I moved I stayed in touch with her until she no longer knew me, I didn't want to confuse her anymore. I really wish I could be there with you ALL, but know my heart hurts too in your loss. Other obligations are keeping me away. My tears have been shed watching the video and I remember her like she was all those years ago. She lives on in each of our hearts. Sending much love, prayers and friendship
