Here is my niece, Erin with my Mom (sitting down next to her) and my Mom’s only sister, my Auntie Eileen at Erin’s 18th birthday party at my parent’s house. Of course you know who that furry character is that Erin is holding….the Boo (AKA Rascal). Taken 8/5/07. This picture takes on new meaning to me now that my Aunt is in the hospital suffering from some sort of dimentia. She is and was a wonderful woman who raised 9 children, was a nurse and helped so many people along the way. She did so much for me as I was growing up and for my family. Here’s to you, Auntie Eileen!!! Thank you for all you have done for me and for all of us!
Update, my Aunt passed away December 22, 2011. She is finally at peace now and will be missed!
