    Last month my auntie was failing, for such a long time
    she had been ailing.
    The end of the month my cousin was crying, because
    my auntie was dying.
    Diabetes had won the fight.
    It's Thanksgiving night
    and after all of the living
    and giving, this phone call
    could not be right.....
    In all of the preparing and
    all the forewarning
    "Auntie died this morning!".
    I count it a blessing
    She taught me a lesson
    Give love while the season
    is new!
    Be fair , and share and be forthcoming
    in all that you do.
    Auntie I'm glad that I told you how proud that
    I had someone like you in my life.
    Besides being my Uncles wife
    You became a second mother
    And close like no other my love for
    you runs river deep.....
    And so as I digest all the information
    of the day and before I go to sleep
    I stop as usual and kneel
    to pray! My auntie has just passed away!
    But, I am rejoicing the life she did live,
    and all of the love that she did give.
    I honor her memory by seeking to be
    as lovely and as honorable a woman as she.

    *For Auntie Ruth...I miss you already!

    this was nice... i'm feelin' you cause my uncle is in the hospital right now with prostate cancer. he is doing fine, but it's important during times like these for your loved ones to be near...
