It is hard for me to receive such a photo without tearing up. The heart gets tight and small, and a lump comes in the throat. I so miss my dearest, dearest auntie! She is such a part of my childhood and youth, and I think of her there in her golden days, the best patient her caretakers could ask for!
It is because of her that I have volunteered recently to join the lay people of my parish to take communion to the home-bound elderly. For how many years my auntie has enjoyed this privilege, all from the hands of kind parish volunteer ministers. When I do this for others it is a way I find to say Thank You to those wonderful people.
