Aunt Helen

How do I
write about a woman
I loved so dearly?

It's difficult to put into words,
the love she shared with Darrell,
the connection I felt with her,
how important she was to our family.

She held all three of our babies,
treasured our visits to her farm,
was our link to Darrell's mom.

Our visits to the farm,
family get togethers,
all treasured memories that are hard to put into words.

Thank you, Aunt Helen,
for accepting me for who I am,
for loving us,
for laughing with us,
you were truly a special woman,
who will be dearly missed.
