I love you Aunt reeree one thing I will never forget is the day I called home when you used to watch me because a teacher had hit me with a chair and then the principal hung up on me and when the principal answered the phone you told her her ass better not be there when you got to that school or you were going to grab her by her hair and yanked her across the counter they asked me to please wait outside and not let that crazy lady in here but you were not crazy you loved me and you were not going to let someone hurt your nephew for a long. You babysat me why Mom started to work you used to take me and Adam to the pool all the time in the summer and you tried to keep me Mindy and Adam from fighting we all loved each other but I think loved tormenting each other more may you rest well my dear Aunt it is just not the same anymore
