Had to take a break from travel. Here are two pages side by side in my journal. Love the color. Oops the other one is at the end of the post.
Today is the memorial for my Aunt Leda who died in August. She was my last female relative on that was still alive and she lived in South Carolina. I miss her and being able to talk to her, travel, go out to dinner and hear her opinions on just about everything. These are all the women on my Mom's side except Chloe and I. My Mom is on the left and Leda on the right. My grandmother is in the foreground and our beloved Aunt Dot in the back. Many happy times as a child visiting them in Greenwich Village. They always wanted to feed me and play cards. My grandmother liked to take us to the Lower East side for bargains and pickles and then we would go to Chinatown and watch the dancing chicken. I wish my own kids could have had those experiences. My Aunt Leda was the closest they had to an active grandparent and I thank her for that.
