Saturday, January 12, 2008 at around five AM my family lost the last of one of the most amazing generations.  My Great Aunt Hazel (I always just called her Aunt Hazel) passed away at 96 years old.  Her and her sisters were all amazing people!  I know they are all greatly missed.  I only remember my grandma and Aunt Hazel but I have heard MANY stories about all the rest.  Aunt Hazel was just like another grandma to me and will be greatly missed.  She was the last of that generation and she will be missed but all the memories of those sisters will live on forever.  Every family get-together there will be SOME story of something they all did!  I have learned through all the tough times we’ve all been through that we are an amazing family.  We truly are.  And I really don’t think that you will ever be able to find a family exactly like ours.  I am VERY thankful for them. 

I have been truly blessed in so many ways and even though sometimes it’s hard to see it… I am…

Heaven is now extra amazing with the addition of my great aunt to join all those she had outlived!  I can’t imagine what it is like now to have them all back together!  We miss them, but they will never suffer again…

I want to give Keelie an extra special thank you for all she did for me.  She was there when I needed to talk and I could call her anytime and she was there just to listen and that meant so much.  I really have some amazing friends too and you all know who you are.
