What is a Aunt?? Is it someone who is always there for you during the bad times and good times? Is it someone who you can call and always know she will answer anytime of the day? Is it someone who loves you for your achievements as well as your mistakes? This is who Aunt Ginger was!! She loved me regardless. She listened, and read between the lines to find the words needed to bring me comfort. After we said goodbye to my mom, she gave me strength even when I couldn't. She taught me to see life through moms eyes. Allowing me to lean on her and cry on her shoulders, all of that while she was hurting and missing her sister as well. This was who she was, always putting others needs ahead of her own. Her love for family and faith in God is the memory I will remember the most. I know she is with mom and her other sisiters watching over their family as only angels can do. Thank you GOD for giving me a lady who I was able to call my Aunt.
