Goodbye to my Auntie ......

Today was the funeral of my Auntie May. My Auntie May was my mum's sister and has been a big part of my life. When I was away with the army she came to stay with me. In my schoolgirl days I stayed with her all the summer holidays. There were a great many memories shared today and she had a good send off. Auntie May was 90 years young and had a good life. Wherever I was I had a birthday and Christmas card, 63 cards. I will miss that card dropping on the mat. I have so many memories.  I  asked her today to give my mum a hug up there in heaven. Rest in peace Auntie May you will be missed.
