Dear Aunt Pat...

Dear Aunt Pat, Today was my 25th Birthday and the most important thing I had to do was visit Uncle Jimmy. Its not the same without you. I still cant believe your gone. You know just a few weeks ago you were at your door and you were waving to me. Every-time I go to nannies I always see you at the door with your makeup on. I always thought you ready to leave to go out someplace. I still picture you there... I always will. I know that Uncle Jimmy will be okay with all of us surrounded by him. Today he was alone and I sat with him for a good half hour and the first thing that he did was smile and he gave me the biggest hug ever. Then he said to me " I am lost without her". It broke my heart. I FEEL like I never got to say thank you for always being there for me. It's not going to be the same christmas eve I truthfully dont want that day to come. You know I was thinking of last christmas eve last night..you were sitting on the couch and you and Uncle Jimmy gave me a christmas gift like you do every year and for some reason when you handed me the bag I was confused. I think I was so overwhelmed by the noise for the first time. I thought that christmas gift was for snuggles because It a dog on the bag lol. I remember all I saw you say was " dog cute". It was so loud because there so many people here and it was my first time with my hearing aids on for the holiday. I walked away and an hour later you ask me if I opened the gift and if I liked it and I said I THOUGHT IT WAS FOR SNUGGLES! You laughed lol. I was so embarrassed. For some reason I keep thinking of this day. You and Uncle Jimmy always donated for the past 3 years for the Walk4Hearing.I remember asking you and you said Of course I'll donate, its for a good cause" and I never got to thank you one more time... I know your okay because your with Great Grandma and Great Grandpa and the list goes on. I know great grandma's happy your with her.
I love you & Miss you... and I promise we will take good care of uncle jimmy.

A very nice tribute to your Aunt. What a great idea to visit your Uncle. I'm sure she is missing you as much as you are missing her. I'm glad that you have a lot of good memories!
