My Aunt passed away last night at 19:30 eastern time. She was the last of that generation and a grand and wonderful lady who had a great personality and a sharp wit. She will live on in her seven children (three boys and four girls) and all who knew and loved her.
I am going to post some pictures that I have taken of her over the years. These first two were at a family reunion back a few years ago:
She had found an old photo of her when she was young and had a T-shirt made up with that picture on the front. Then she laid down on the grass to duplicate the pose. She was always willing to go that little extra to please others and give them joy. We tried to pay back some that by making and sending her cards every day.
This next picture was taken only a few years ago of me and her, but before she fell and broke her hip and then ended up in the nursing home.
The next two were taken the last time I saw her, and that was back before I had the diesel pusher MH. Not sure exactly when it was. She was always happy and joking:
She even got me laughing:
And of course my wife was there, too:
