Putting words to feelings for a loved one is quite a difficult task. It seems nearly impossible to really explain the deep connections we share. But at times like this, we have to try.
I love and cherish every moment I spent with Aunt Charlotte. She had a way about her that just made you feel special. She was never phony, she would just tell you the way it was. She saw the good in people and I think we all saw the good in her.
She had a generous soul. She always opened her home to me and made me feel at home whenever I was with her. We loved going to restaurants and casinos together. I honestly couldn’t say how many small adventures we had together over the years, but I don’t think the number really matters. What matters is the memories we shared and the friendship and love we built no matter what we did.
Aunt Charlotte was a keystone to this family to me. She held us together. We have all felt the loss of other keystone relatives, and every time it can seem the family bond is weaker and we drift apart. I would like you all to remember that just as we love Aunt Charlette, we love each other. Just like she brought us all together, we can also bring ourselves together. I believe she would have wanted it that way.
