    Aunt Carol was my mothers life long friend. They were “partners in crime” for 60 years. Though not related to me by blood, she was an Aunt to me in every way, living on me as if I were her own. I am grateful for her love and I am grateful for the way she loved my mother. I’m sure they’re up in heaven together pal-ing around like they always did.
