I'll really miss our phone chats. Aunt Merle would often ask if I was happy and would always tell me she loved me, two pretty special things. But my favorite memory of Aunt Merle was probably a call I missed. I got home from a meeting one evening and my new partner said "Aunt Merle called." I asked is everything ok, should I call her back? Barbara replied "No, she just called to chat. It was great." So just like that Barbara met her Aunt Merle and was welcomed into her circle of love despite the many miles between us.
