I lost an aunt last week

Aunt Alice lived a good, long life, spending many of her winters in Texas even after her husband, my mom's brother, Paul, passed away.  I only have two aunts living now:  Aunt Mary and Aunt Ruth, and only one aunt who is a blood relative... Daddy's sister, my Aunt Gladys.  All my uncles are gone.

Seems like I'm hearing about a lot of funerals lately.

That's Aunt Alice and Uncle Paul before he went off to help win World War II.

I'm so sorry about your aunt.  I really like the picture; it looks like many of my mom and dad and their siblings.  My dad was in the Navy in 1943.

God Bless Aunt Alice.  I bet they were real proud of those beautiful horses too!  Linda

I love to look at the old pictures. I had an aunt Alice too, but I don't have a single picture of her. She was an RN and I've often wondered how she was able to accomplish that in those days when there was no money to speak of. Paula
