This is my aunt Annette. Here she is reading to me when I was just a youngster.
Here she is with PlusOne when we went to Orlando almost nine years ago.
My aunt is dying. As I write this, she has maybe a day or two more to live. She was a wonderful aunt who was always there for me. She got her PhD in Education in 1966. She taught grade school and in the SUNY Plattsburgh college system. She believed strongly in reading to children and she always sent us special books for our birthday and Christmas. She continued that tradition with my son.
She used to talk about me so much everyone thought I was her illegitimate child. A few weeks ago she asked for a lap robe from my sister and I. My sister already had a top made so I had to sew up a top so it would be two sided. One side would ALWAYS be near my aunt's heart. Here is my sister's side.
