Thank you for all your kinds words. I've been waiting to post anything until we could bring home Emma from Marching Band camp. My Aunt died on Thursday and I was able to be with her during her final moments.
If you've been a follower of my blog, you will have seen my two Aunts' featured at all our family parties. My Aunt Jean had been in a wheelchair for over 60 years after contracting polio as a child. Her constant caregiver (my "adopted" Aunt Marion) had been with her for 41 years. Together, they were the dynamic duo.
My Aunt Jean was an amazing woman. Never one to let her disabilities slow her down, she earned her bachelors degree and a masters degree in Social Work. She was a determined special lady, even when illness eventually required her to use a respirator.
It's been barely six months since Chris's mother's death. My Aunt's cancer diagnosis was a shock to all of us. As you can imagine, this is so hard. One of the last things she shared with Chris and I was that she was looking forward to tap dancing in heaven and reuniting with her parents.
Tap dance your heart out, Aunt Jean. Give my grandparents lots of hugs. We love you so very very much.
