My mom was one of eight children. There is only 3 left here on earth, and my Aunt Ida will be 95 in January. She is on the downside of life now, waiting to rejoin her husband, son, and family in Heaven. She had to go into a care facility.
Aunt Ida is the keeper of family papers and things. She taught me piano, well, at least tried. She met my to be husband, the same night as my mom....they were playing Yahtzee. Sometimes, she would run me to the store, before I could drive, let me shop at Federals Dept. store, and then come take me home. I think she is an amazing woman.
My cousin cleaned out her apartment and sent family members things that would mean something to them. I was tickled. Let me show you a few things....
This is a doily she made. Didn't know she knew how to do that!
Postcards my mom sent to her....2 cents postage...about 1955.
I bought my Aunt Ida this German/English devotional book for her 90th birthday....
My grandpa and grandma read the Bible every night together in German.
This is a pic of a pic, but this is my Grandpa and Grandma. I miss them every day, seriously, I really do. Grandpa was so strong and Grandma so quiet....sometimes!
I think this was my favorite item.....it was a Christmas card from my Mom and Dad. I must have been very young. There is no date....but this is the part that shocked me....
The card has the names printed. I NEVER knew my mom EVER did that. I am so framing this. I received several other items...it was a bit of memory lane.
I Love you, Aunt Ida.
