Today I learned that my aunt passed away. She was always so kind to me and always greeted me with a sweet smile, hugs and kisses, even when I got older and would only see her every few years. I keep thinking of how she would always remind me that she and I have the same birthday. I loved hearing her say that when I was a child; perhaps it was just that she made me feel so special like we had a unique and special connection because we shared the same birthday. I don’t know, I guess it seems silly thinking about how excited I would get about her as a child. As we grow older we don’t think it’s so important to hear those same things over and over until the day comes when that person is no longer with us to say those words. I’ll hold on to those words and seeing her sweet smile and the warmth that I still feel when I think of her kind heart. Aunt Faye, I wish you perfect and peaceful rest in the loving arms of our Lord in heaven.
