In memoriam: My Aunt - Mi Tia 1932-2009

My Aunt, my Grandfather and me, 1977
Coney Island. Brooklyn N.Y.
My Aunt died in Hobe Sound, Florida of cardiac arrest Dec. 28th 2009, she was 77 years old.
She was buried in Freehold, New Jersey Dec. 30.

4 or 5 years ago I went with my Mother to visit my Aunt in Florida... I took this little video with my camera in my Aunt's kitchen.

Love the video and love all that she must have meant for you and your family. I don't know you nor did I know her, but I am truly sorry that you've lost her and I am sure the world is a little dimmer today because of her departure. Hugs and may you find comfort and lasting love in your memories of her and her life.

When someone close dies... a family member, or a close friend.... it always makes you very aware of your own mortality... especially if you are over 50 years old.
Something that people in their 20's, 30's and early 40's don't often feel in touch with.
