My last visit with Aunt Mary was in late August of this year. At that time, she told me she would not be here for very long due to her illness. Our visit was loving and heartfelt; we discussed old times, family members, and life. We spent about three hours going back in time and laughing and talking about all of these things. She shared stories of times with her brother and sisters, spoke about her kids, and I shared the same with her. I taught her how to text on her phone that day and added my name to her contacts.

When I got ready to leave, we shared a long hug at the door, and she kissed me on the cheek. I told her I loved her, and I thanked her for all the beautiful things she had done for me as a kid. She was a wonderful aunt and a great lady. I will miss her and our little visits.
