One of many great memoriesI have of Aunt Ginger is when they first bought that burnt Victorian house and was remodeling it. Me and Brynna was running around the house outside in circles like some wild kids. Marla was really little, she could have been right there with us it's possible but my memory isn't that good. Lol. I ran past a pile of wood laying on the side of the house and one of the boards had a nail sticking out, which caught my foot. I went crying to my Aunt and she sat me down on the step, looked at it, wrapped my foot with one of Marlas diapers (for the bleeding ) and hugged me. I first looked at her like she was a mad woman but when she smiled, well that had a way of easing my soul and I knew everything was gonna be alright. Dont remember much after that but I still have that darn scar on my foot. Lol I love you Aunt Ginger, you will be very much missed <3 Ja.
