a little bit sad...
My Auntie Louise passed away on Saturday and we are all a bit sad here. Auntie Louise was my Mom's sister, and a very interesting woman.
She was so smart and remembered everyone's birthday, where they lived and any detail you could ever want to know. She was the unofficial family historian. As a scrapbooker, I loved that. I knew where my grandparents grew up because she remembered. There's a lot I never got to ask her.
She raised three great kids (now great adults) as a single Mom and put herself through university, all on a teacher's salary. I don't know if she ever knew how much I admired her.
Even though my daughter didn't see her great aunt very much they had a special relationship. Auntie Louise would send her notes and stickers all the time. I'll never forget the encouraging note she sent Sidney when she was frustrated about being left handed. It made her feel so much better...since Auntie Louise was left handed (and had such nice printing) it was okay that she was too.
We'll miss you Auntie Louise.
