Farewell, Aunt Barbara

I've been lucky to have some pretty great aunts...(not meaning Great Aunts who were pretty, though the only Great Aunts I dimly recall meeting as a little kid may or may not have been pretty...but that's all irrelevant.)...and one of them recently left us. Aunt Barbara was one of our "fun relatives", with a perpetual twinkle in her eye, a gravel voice thanks to countless cigarettes, and a great sense of family. Her home was always filled with warmth and love, and a small measure of barely-controlled exuberance at all times. There's laughter in Heaven tonight...


  1. Mama sure was a hoot, and probably has Heaven giggling at this moment. Thanks for your kind words. You captured her just as I think of her from those years on Lemon Hill Avenue, with the never ending coffee for all drop-in visitors.

  2. Please accept my condolences for your loss.
