My Aunt Barb took care of me everyday after school for years. She would always give me ice cream and let me watch her favorite show, Days of our Lives. We would sit around the table while her and Grannie told stories and I realize now how much I loved those days. She was a beautiful example of a Strong woman and I loved her so very much.
