Auntie Joe, there are just so many memories from your house with Auntie Rose. From making pepper biscuits, to you just showing me around the house. You will always have a special place in my heart. I love you!

Dear Auntie Jo,

We were waiting to come see you again and are so sorry that you spent the last few months without visitors. Please know that it wasn’t because we weren’t thinking of you or didn’t want to, but simply because we were not allowed to.

You were such a huge part of our trips back East and we always looked forward to spending time with you, even if it was only for a few minutes until you politely kicked us out because you had lunch or bingo to attend to :-) thank you for the gifts of art work and quarters over the last decade or so, for always rifling through your draw a the Care Center looking for something to send us home with.

Thank goodness you met baby Violet last year, named after your little sister, my grandma Mary. That meant a lot to me.

We will always remember you smiling and easy going, your presence at every family gathering and hosting so many of your own. The smell of meatballs and pasta coming from your kitchen, of roasted potatoes and baked appetizers. Watching holiday parades on the TV in your living room, and opening presents ay Christmastime in that same room for many decades. Your vintage tchotchkes (like the very real looking plastic fruit), your simple and always tidy bedroom, the freezer that never quite froze things, the oldest telephone I had ever seen, and the yard that we had many family photos taken of over the years.

Thank you for always assuring us that everything was ok, that family is everything, and to be careful.

We will miss you.
