I appreciate vintage style, photography, travel,
fresh flowers, and the art of baking.

Well, today wasn't the happiest of days. Work wasn't the best, but then I went to the St. Susanna festival to check it out and see Fr. Glenn. All of that was fun, and it was good to see our old priest. However, on our way home, my great aunt calls me looking for Grandpa. My Great Aunt Tootie is about to pass away. Now, she's had bone marrow cancer for a long time, she's 87, and well, you'd think we'd all be prepared. Well, we hurried up to get there, but she had already passed on. She was right in the middle of a Reds game, too. (She LOVED baseball!)
I'm comforted to know that she's up in heaven, looking down on us with a smile and living in a painless world. She's up there with her husband (he died back in 1985), my great grandparents (her parents), and countless friends and family. I'll always remember visiting her in Florida with her house smelling like Entenmann's coffee cake and playing on the organ. She was a wonderful woman, and definitely one of my favorite relatives. Rest in peace, Aunt Tootie.
