Forgive me, i'm a little late posting this. i just don't think i'll be able to express on a blog all the things i'd say. so i'll just say a few things... My great Aunt Kitty and I had a unique relationship, i'm not sure many people have the priveledge to be so close to a great aunt. Growing up we would go to her house frequently for extended family gatherings. and we'd play with the little metal stove set halfway up the stairs (do you remember that katie?) she always loved to have us play our instruments and sing at christmas no matter how terrible we actually sounded! Through college and in the past several years I've enjoyed sending her mail as her secret pal. She enjoyed getting the mail and since our family gatherings became fewer over the years it helped me to keep close to her. aunt kitty passed away last month after many health issues. Well, i'm not good with words so i won't try to explain my thoughts any more but i've attached a couple pictures... a the top was one of aunt kitty and i at my bridal shower! her obit from the paper (click on it to enlarge it and read it) and a great picture of aunt kitty and mommom! we miss you aunt kitty. and mommom, you were a great sister to her!
