She was… A giant spirit dwelling in a sassy petite frame and I once dreamed of being short like her.
She was… My first cab ride downtown because [though she was courageous] she never conquered her fear of driving.
She was… An angel who treated my first hangover like a bona fide sickness with tender mercy.
She was… The first to plant the seed in a young girl’s mind that one day she could be a writer and thirty five years later said “I told you so.”
She was… In my heart, a friend… a sister… a confidant and a mother
She was… My Aunt Gloria
~~~And today my heart breaks for a spirit that will be so thoroughly missed~~~
Happy Birthday and R.I.P Gloria Ann – June 13, 1943 – June 13, 2012

So sorry Janna…….Sounds like your aunt was a neat lady. May God hold you close, like a warm blanket, on a cold Winters night. Peace.
Thank you so much Joni. You’re kind words are a comfort.
oh, I was born 1945, two years left for me – I have to hurry …
One never knows…
I would think that you’re at the age to slow down and savor the moments 🙂
