I have so many memories of Aunt Barbara. I use to go hang out with Aunt Barbara every Monday. We would go shopping sometimes or just sit and talk for hours. She told me things about my mom when they were growing up. Things I never knew. She always invited me to stay for dinner, sometimes I did but mostly I went home. I wish I could change that now. The last year I didn't go over there anymore on Mondays because I had to take care of my mom and she understood but I missed those days even if it was just for a few hours on Mondays. Aunt Barbara was generous and kind to everyone she met. I will miss her dearly.
