She was the greatest aunt you could ask for. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a love for animals that was unmatched. She was the sweetest person, but could swear like sailor and was a ton of fun. She was a firecracker in a little package and never afraid to tell it like it is. She was one of my top two favorite people (my mom and her). The loss of my mother, her sister and her best friend devastated her and more than likely led to the outcome last night. She knew it was her time and she did fight it at all. She was in the same room and the same bed my mom was in last year when she passed. I feel like my mom was there to see her getting close, grabbed her hands and yanked her over to the other side. She left this world in peace and likely laughing so hard she is crying right now with my mom/her beloved sister. You will be missed so much, but we all know you are now happier than you have been in a long time.
