This week we celebrated the life of my hubby's last living aunt and placed her in the Lord's care. His Auntie was a twin and I posted about the other sister on 8/25/2009. If you would like to go back and read the post I am sure you would enjoy reading about what feisty women they were and always a lady.
When Auntie M turned 98 on February 5 th of this year we asked her why she thought she lived so long. She told us, "You have to eat healthy, live it up everyday of your life, and eat strawberries and ice cream every night before you go to bed." Not bad advice do you think?
She left us on Valentine's Day with a world full of loving memories.
I think for my hubby and his three cousins it was quite a stark realization that now they are the oldest generation.
L to R: my hubby, cousin A, cousin J, and cousin B.
My husband is the only one who has any siblings. The other three cousins were all only children.
So we are left with our memories of yesterday and our dreams for tomorrow. So hope you all eat healthy, live it up as if every day was your last, and always, always have strawberries and ice cream before you go to bed. Cause I think Auntie knew best!
