I remember when my aunt and godmother was working for Macy's in NYC and I went there after graduation in 1964 and got a job. She and I did many things together there and had a lot of fun during that summer except when I got lost and scared her. Luckily I found my way back to her apartment because she was going to call the FBI. When it came to Christmas presents, she would always get me a doll that was different from Rose's and Linda's. As a child, when she would come home for vacations from Macy's, I would always spend my nights with her and help her clean up my grandparents' house. In these past few years, I was so sorry she didn't know me when I visited, but I always sent her cards.
