I was my Auntie's favorite. I am so fortunate for the title and the love, memories and shananagins I had with her. She had my back and taught me to be obsessed with skip bo.
Her life made mine better. I had very special times with her, that I hope I pass on to my nieces, nephews and all the people I love and encounter. That is what she taught me!
