I haven't seen my Aunt Shirley in over 25 years. I always thouhjt I would have time to see her again. My best memory of Aunt Shirley is 30 years ago when my husbank and my 5 month old daughter came to spend Thanksgiving with er and Uncle Irwin. The only time I was allowed to touch my daughter during that long week-end is when it was time to nurse her. Aunt Shirley wouldn't even let me change her diapers! She gave my daughter, Heather, her first taste of grown-up food during that Thanksgiving dinner; candied yams. And the next morning it was grits and red-eye gravy. I miss you so much Aunt Shirley. You will make heaven a brighter place.
