I will always remember and cherish one day when I went to visit Aunt Mary. She treated me so special, reminded me of my mother. I was planning to stop by and visit but it became an all day visit! Im so thankful for that memory she made me sandwich a little soup some fresh homemade bread; zucchini or walnut bread! And then we chatted all day long! I only wish I wouldve spent more time with her..! She was such a strong little lady! I never heard her complain about anything, but I know she fought with health issues for so many years. She loved God and loved her family.. they meant so much to her! A truly virtuous woman, without a doubt.. I plan to meet her along with so many of my family and friends in that heavenly city! Ill see you soon Auntie!! Anita Blouin
