Late Night or Early Morning

Yes, I am up inordinately late! Just finished my "homework" for my online class. I didn't post this before - but my Aunt Mary that I talked about moving into the nursing home where I work passed away Sunday morning at 6pm. She waved at a CNA about five til 6, then at 6, she was just gone. The way she wanted it. In her sleep and peaceful. I'm grateful for the time we spent, the fact that my Uncle Gene, the last of all 13 children, and I had a chance to talk, and that Aunt Mary saved two things, jokes and pictures. I will be pouring over the pix for a while. So, I have to know that, as in all things, all happens for a reason.
I will be posting some pix and stories about the adventures of Aunt Mary soon! These little bird vases just make me happy!

Glad things went the way Aunt Mary planned. Can't wait to read about her and see her pictures. Yep, birds make me happy, too!

Thanks! I miss her jokes the most, I think. But she brought a lot of joy into every person's life she touched. I am sorting through the pix. Today, at work, I received a special delivery from my aunt in Chicago (my dad's brother, who has also passed on)-it was Aunt Mary's ring she wanted me to have. I felt so honored. I'll take a picture of that too!
