Saying Goodbye to two Aunts

Friday, February 05, 2010

My dad's sister Mickey died yesterday, she was 92.

One of my favorite memories is of visiting my Aunt when I was about 5. My family spent the day at her house sledding in Ortonville, Michigan. They lived at the top of a hill and we sled up and down the road all day long.

My mother's Aunt Dorothy also died, she was 86.
Aunt Dorothy had severe arthritis and spent the last 8 years of her life in a nursing home.

Looking at both of these women I am inspired by both of their lives.
My Aunt Mickey raised five children and her home felt warm and filled with love. She believed in God's grace.

My great Aunt Dorothy ran her own business and had a family too. I know she too believed in God's grace.

May they both rest in eternal peace.

    *hugs* Even when we know it's time for them to return home to the Father, it's not easy to deal with the hole they leave in our lives. How thankful I am that you had them for so many years. That's the blessings of the Lord!

  I'm so sorry for your loss. Having love in our hearts for another person is rewarding and makes us better people. Unfortunately, the downside is the sadness we feel when they are gone from this life. I hope that your memories keep you sustained and warm.
