Mother and Aunt Mary were married to brothers, but their bond was as sisters. While the men worked to provide for their families, "the girls" managed the home fronts and their passle of kiddos. Aunt Mary had a "can do" attitude and their wasn't much that she couldn't, most often with her giggly little laugh, though often sprinkled with a few choice words. The term " dynamite comes in small packages" perfectly described her. I'm sure they're all rejoicing in their reunion. She was special; she will be missed. Hugs and prayers for all her loved ones.
