Aunt Mares was always funny, thoughtful and, yes, stubborn. I loved all those things about her. The photo that Bobbie has shared is great. So like Mares with her grin and determined look. Did you know she and I share a middle name? How sweet. Actually, I did not know that until recently. She has always been Mares or Marilou.
Bobbie said your mom and dad were always good to us. Really, they spoiled us rotten. Gifting us everytime we all got together. There were toys, dolls and pretzels from the street vendor. One time they brought over a doll for one of us. We all fussed about it so much they brought matching dolls for the other three the next week. They gave us our first TV and our first dog, Hanz.
We really need to share all those memories.
I have included a photo here. Mares with her famous smile and my mom. I will miss her.

Aunt Mares was always there for me and my sisters, when we were growing up. We were her "kids" before she and Uncle Whitey had their own two beautiful daughters. After Grandma died, Mares was the one who whistled for the Easter bunny. She took care of us when our Mom was in the hospital. We didn't get away with anything that week. I remember her cookies and awaited their delivery every holiday season.
My Mom, who was 4.5 years older than Mares, told me Mares was a "pest" as a kid. Always following her around. LOL. I bet all older children have that memory. They shared a bedroom and a bed growing up. Mom will miss their phone calls.
This photo was taken a few months ago on Mom's last visit to St Louis. She and her brother Jim had a wonderful opportunity to spend time with Mares. Great Memories.
