My aunt donna had a heart that was huge. She loved everyone around her and hardly ever had a negative thing to say about anyone. I camped with her and her family, my cousins, for years. I know I was totally jealous of her water skiing skills let alone her skill at cooking. It always made us laugh when a joke was told and she would say "I don't get it". Then a few days later she would be alone laughing like crazy, when asked what is so funny she would say " I get it. We would all go what, the joke I get the joke. We would all just bust up. She would light up a room with her laugh. I loved her so much and will miss her terribly. She had many people waiting to greet her to her heavenly home.
