I found this page in one of the boys scrapbooks that we had made years ago, and it was dedicated to Auntie Mae! It was entitled "Visiting Auntie Mae". This dates back to trips from 2008 and 2010 when we would come back to IL from VA. The print on the scrapbook page is kind of tiny, but the pictures do all of the talking. What a host she was! Beds were ready, she got out the special toys for the boys. And,as you can see, Auntie Mae made big breakfasts !

Auntie Mae always fondly reminisced about walking outside with nephew Leslie in her arms, and showed him the harvest moon. Oh how he loved to see that!

Bertha Mae, always with both names is how my mother said it. They enjoyed each others company because Bertha Mae was easy to like. She could pull mom out of her shell. That's what good friends do. In later years when Bertha moved to Illinois, they still kept in touch with a call or a card.

Although there was almost two decades difference in our age, I too found her to be a friend. As it happens, she and I had things in common. We would chat on the phone from time to time. At first, it was to keep her up to date on mom's condition as her health declined. After she passed on, Bertha and I continued to pick up the phone and chat. These conversations often covered many topics because she was an avid reader.

Bertha Mae was a warm and a caring lady. I enjoyed her company and will treasure those memories.
