Memories of Love

I’ll be breaking for a bit, as my family and I gather to celebrate the joy of a rich and wonderful life, my lovely Aunt Lee.  She celebrated her 96th birthday just a few weeks ago, with cake, ice cream, noisemakers, and recognition from our State General Assembly.

She passed away today, and I was by her side, holding her hand.  Our last words were, “I love you.”  I’m at peace.

Through the years, we’ve been close, but I have to say in the last five years since her husband’s passing, we’ve been even closer.

When my Uncle Charlie died in 2005, our last words were a promise, “I’ll take care of your wife.”

That I did… and it was a joy to do.
