My great aunt - my grandmother's youngest sister (the youngest of nine) - passed away last night after a brief battle with cancer. In my grandmother's eyes Violet and I could do no wrong. We were, as Violet coined us, the "chosen ones."
My thoughts are with her husband Jim and their kids and grandkids on this day.
And to Violet...it is with a heavy heart that we wish you a sweet farewell. Rest peacefully - and you and Grandma take good care of each other.
