Aunt Leta

My Aunt Leta left us peacefully yesterday morning. She had been in a 'deep sleep' ever since being revived after she had collapsed in the lobby of her apartment complex Sunday afternoon. She will be missed by many people; her Red Hatters group, her friends at Southwest Presbyterian church, neighbors that she drove to appointments and on errands, and family that she shared her time and many crafting talents with.
Just some old photos from my mother's album.

You can find newer pictures of Aunt Leta if you look at my blog posts that are of family gatherings.
For me, Aunt Leta was an inspiration. She was artistic and independent. She didn't just think about doing things, she did them. Having worked on the family genealogy, I know that Aunt Leta came by these traits quite honestly as she descends from a long line of strong, independent women. What a wonderful legacy to be left with. I will miss you, Aunt Leta.

Hugs go out to you... and your neighbor too! You've had a rough year... well, 2009 and now 2010 too!

Thank you, OG! Yes, and this is only part of it. Last week a friend of my best friend lost her husband suddenly from a brain aneurysm. And my sil's brother went to the ER from an accidental OD from his prescription meds. It's been crazy. :(
