Easter Sunday and the Passing of my Great-Great Aunt Anna at 108 years

I would like to wish a Happy Easter to everyone! Last night I went to the Easter Vigil service at my church, so today I am lounging and avoiding the Easter Sunday egg-hunting crowds for now. I plan to a little of that later.

Last week my Aunt Anna died at the age of 108. Please read this newspaper article, Monday's Child is Full of Life, about her last birthday, a month ago. Aunt Anna has been an inspiration to me much of my life.

I have been digging through my keepsakes trying to find the last letter I got from her, about a year ago. If I find it, I will post it! (Let's pray I do!)

My thoughts are with you. I'm sorry for your loss. She shines of the love she must have brimmed with, sharing it with others.

I'm hoping you find the letter. It will be a treasure and an honor to read it. :)

I'm so sorry for our loss but what a blessing to have had her for so long!! What a sweet glow she had about her - I truly hope you find that letter, and I agree with Zee's post, it would be an honor to read it. Thank you for sharing.
