A sad day!

Yesterday at 9:00 p.m. my dear Aunt Thelma left us, she passed peacefully. Finally her struggle came to an end and she is now reunited with Uncle Harry. She and I were blessed with a very close relationship. When I was eighteen years old I spent two weeks with my Aunt and Uncle at the cottage. Apparently before I arrived she said to my Uncle Harry  "What are we going to do with an eighteen year old for two weeks?" They did not need to worry, for me going to the cottage was fun enough. We did other things too, there was a trip to Grand Bend and of course a lunch date at Cosmos. I still visit Cosmos pretty much every time I visit my Mom. We did a lot of other things in my two weeks. What really stays in my mind is what a lady my Aunt was. She spoke perfectly, dressed perfectly, and she treated me like I was so special. From that visit on we were the best of friends, we never had anything but good times when we were together. Two years ago I found a special card for her for Thanksgiving it had a covered bridge on the front and the verse suited her to a tee. Of course when I went to mail it I couldn't find it. Thankfully I found it and this past Thanksgiving she received it in the mail and she did like it. I know I am a very lucky person for having her in my life. She has taught me many things just by what she did and how she did things.
Today heaven received a new angel, and my Aunt and Uncle are reunited. She struggled for some years now and God bless her she is at eternal peace.
Soon I will choose a new cross stitch project it will be my Aunt Thelma project! Stay tuned I still have not decided but I will shortly.
