Aunt Lois

My Aunt Lois
You were so different from the women I knew
And from early on my heart was drawn to you.
Your love of keeping busy, creative hands,
Your adventuresome spirit of other people and lands,
How any small child drew you right in,
And soft, warm critters were instantly friends,
The way you enjoyed long talks into night,
And my endless questions with you were alright,
Your welcoming spirit to me and my crew,
From the strength of your faith, peace  I drew,
Our strong attachment to our sisters and brothers,
Loving our red haired husbands above all others,
Oh, and one last thing I guess,
Our infinite ability to make a good mess,
You’re a wonderful aunt, a better friend,
And your vibrant spirit will go on without end.
Aunt Lois flew away home at 3:30 this morning.  April 25, 1920 to September 23, 2013


  1. I am so sorry you have lost your aunt -- your friend. Sending hugs -- hope they will help.
