I've just come from Aunt Jean funeral. They ask for to get up and speak, but I couldn't of said what was in my heart. First off when I ordered her flowers for I saw these red roses, but they weren't quite right so I had them be white, pink and red. White for the purity of her spirit. Pink for the love and kindness of her heart and red for her strength. When her sister Aunt Ruby was dying of cancer in Michigan she would leave her you family after a weeks work drive all the way up to Michigan. She would spent the weekend cleaning and cooking and talking to Ruby. And never complain or boo hoo about she what was doing their. When my parents where divorcing in 1970 for one week Lesa and Carmella and me went to stay for a week. Brother Mike went to Aunt Gus's and Uncle Jim's house because they had boys. Well I was the oldest girl and very moody and Aunt Jean Kindness and care and very firm hand made it a very fond memory for me. When I was 14 in Michigan and very sulky. Aunt Jean spent time trying to point me to a better way to be. Didn't help at the, but the memory of her taking the time to see me as I was and to try and help me. Was never been forgotten by me. And end the her kindness was a seed once planted did bear beautiful fruit. My kin growing up were each of them in different ways poured different qualities into me. And it been really hard this week to lose Aunt Jean this week but to realize that the last of mama's family is gone.
