Memories

Memories, when I was an infant my Mom took me on a long journey on the train. We went to visit my Mom's older sister who lived a small village, Oil Springs. That was the first trip of many through my life. When I was a teenager I made my first trip on my own. I flew into London, Ontario and my dear Aunt and Uncle  picked me up at the airport and we went to their cottage near Forest on Lake Huron. I stayed for two weeks. I would later find out that they were a little worried about entertaining me for two weeks, but that was never a problem. All three of us had a great time. That was the year I discovered Cosmo's Pizza. Everytime I go to Sarnia it is always on our agenda. Yummy. Through the years my Aunt and I have always remained very close. My dear Uncle passed away, it was a struggle but my Aunt dealed with life as best she could. In October my Aunt celebrated her 90th birthday, she is now in the hospital she has taken a very bad fall. I have spent as much time with her as I could. She is getting very tired. Things were said that had to be said and hugs have been given. Prayers and tears are on going.
Life is a wondeful and life is very sad. For me right now I am very sad but that being said I have been blessed because I have a very special family great Aunts and Uncles, very special cousins who are like brothers and sisters. I am an only child. Thank you all for all your love and goodness.
Thank you Aunt Thelma for all that you have given to me and to my family..........I will love you forever!

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Yes I do have wonderful memories of my Aunt and Uncle and no one will ever be able to take them away. On the other hand I have been blessed to have shared so many years with her, it is harder to know that I am going to lose her. Her condition right now is the same, no better no worse.
