Just a quick one day post. My Aunt Jane passed at the age of 87 on Monday. Oh, she was a force of nature. Tiny with an infectious laugh. This picture from back in the day pretty much exudes her personality. I always wanted to be blonde and vivacious like her. She was "fun", unlike my dear practical mother who had a boatload of common sense. ( That was my teen me perception)
Alas, the spark diminished and slowly the embers burned out these past years. It was time for her to go.
And now today, Tuesday July 10th, my mother will have been gone exactly 26 years. She passed at age 60 in 1992
