Aunt Gay.

Dear Gay,

Before dad passed, I started an online journal. I jotted down things I didn't want to forget. This will be posted on a page on my site, and this page is dedicated to you...

I want to say that your strength and courage these past few months has just been incredible. I love you so much for being right by our sides (and Dad's), for what has been one of the biggest trials of all of our lives. I truly don't know how we will ever be able to thank you for everything. You held me together so many times, when I just wanted to crumble. You were wonderful to Dad and never left his side, though I know just how hard it all had to be. My heart just goes out to you...I know how rough this is. Don't ever say that you don't have anyone now...you have all of us, any time you need us. You know that we are all there for you, and always will be.

When you are having a rough time, when things are bringing you down...think about how much dad loved you. Think about how happy he was, just to have you around. Think about how much love all of us have for you. Imagine him, mom, Bob, and Granny...all together again and smiling down at us.

If you ever need anything, you either get over here or pick up that phone. We're never more than a phone call away.

I love you,
S

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your wonderful comments. I thought the best way to thank you would be to visit yours in return ;). It's people like your aunt Gay who get us through life's difficult moments. Thank God they exist. You're lucky to have her. Blood is thicker than water, isn't it? :-).

Keep in touch
