*~A Heart of Gold~*

Aunt Carrie & Aunt Teanie

I've been blessed many times over and family has been one of my greatest blessings. Today we celebrated the life of my great~aunt "Teanie" she was my grandma's sister on my Mom's side. One of the absolutely sweetest ladies you could ever know. She did not have a lot of worldly goods but she had a heart made of gold.

She loved to piece quilts and a lot were pieced by hand the old fashion way. She also loved to garden. She had more stamina than even a lot of young folks. I remember when my Grandma was living she called me one day and said me and sis took out a cabinet today and put in a new one. She was so proud that here they were in their 70's and still able to be as spry as a couple of young chicks!

I just visited with her a little over a week ago and although she was battling cancer she wanted to give me some cookies she had baked. You could never go visit her without leaving with something she baked or canned.

Today we had a farewell to say goodbye to one very special lady. Aunt Teanie you will truly be missed by many!

Aunt Teanie's two lovable kiddo's....Wendell and Sharron

My great~uncle's Gerald, Bud, and Jack....Uncle Bud also turns 90 this year!

Wendell had my little niece Megan on her toes! Wendell is a huge cut~up and asked Megan "How does an elephant pick his nose" and Megan's response was "I'll have to ask my brother!" Sounded good to me.

It was a beautiful day to celebrate a life that touched so many.....Love ya and miss ya already Aunt Teanie!

Happy Trails....Ginger
