Sister Pam, Dad and I will be heading out a little later this morning on a trip to Eau Claire, Wisconsin to say good-bye to Aunt Doris.
She will be remembered by many for the sparkle in her eyes, her clever sense of humor, her lovely soprano voice, and the way she could cook - - - oh how she could cook!
She will be remembered by me as a soft, warm, comfortable place to call home away from home.
As a child I spent a lot of time in her care. I remember playing on the sleeping porch, eating raw hot-dogs - - - what a treat! - - - watching cartoons, and exploring gullies.
Aunt Doris, I am not ready for those days to be gone. I will miss them, and you.
I love you always.
