My mother Doris and her two sisters Ruth and Wilmalee. My mother loved her sisters and I wish I had known them better. Near the end of my mother’s life I had wanted to take Mother to see Aunt Ruthie but she didn’t make it. I still feel very sad about that. I used to get letters from Aunt Ruthie from the nursing home she was in but I haven’t heard from her in ages. Not even sure if she is still alive. I’ll do a FB post and see if any Ohio family knows. You can say what you want about crazy Facebook but sometimes it keeps us in touch with people that we used to lose track of. I moved around so much in my life and lost so many people that I wished I could still communicate with from time to time.
Mother spent a lot of time with Aunt Wilmalee before she passed, which is a blessing. Although my mother had to see too many loved ones pass before she did. I can’t imagine how hard that is but she always had a smile and a good word and a hug for everyone. Both my brother Tommy and my sister Patty passed before her. I love my kids so much I don’t know how I would survive if this happened to me.
