It’s a great big world, a great big moon, it’s a great big sky and a great big love for you, Auntie Jo.
My Auntie was my mother’s younger sister, a twin to my aunt Cloe Ann. My Auntie and I had a special connection based on love, appreciation and admiration. At times a disconnection from a deep connection because sometimes time and distance does that. Disconnnected by distance, but not disconnected by heart.
My Auntie was greeted into heaven today by her daughter Mary, husband Cliff, her parents, brother Tom, my dad, along with sister-in-laws Marcia and Margie. I look forward to the day I meet you there, Auntie Jo.
You’re an angel, you’re my angel, deep in my heart and even deeper in my soul.
My Auntie had the most beautiful heart; unconditional, forgiving. Kind. A heart so big; strong, tender and full of love.
Lay down and rest, my Auntie, lay down.
I’ll feel your love, feel your light shining over me today and everyday forward.
Your love will fill my emptiness. Your love and strong belief in God is my tether to a higher power because I will follow you on every highway to your soul because your road to human kindness is the road where I want to go. My shadow will follow you.
So lay down softly in our sorrow, lay down softly and drift goodbye. Your years of love lay down gracefully and drift with the angels because now is your time. Your time to rest, your time for life to be easy, your time to take a deep breath without pain. Today is such a day.
Goodbye, my Auntie, goodbye. I love you.
