Sympathy Saturday - Stella Mary Zalot

I can't believe it's been 21 years since my husband's beloved Tash died. She was his mother's sister and lived with his parents in the home where DH grew up. On the day she died, she was getting ready to go on a weekend trip. She'd been happier than she had been in years.

Both my daughters were close to their great aunt Stella Zalot. Younger daughter wrote what is included in today's post. Younger daughter was 10 at the time, and read it at Tash's funeral.

Aunt Tash.

The time has come to say goodbye to someone we all love. We'll treasure her forever, and never let her go.

The gentle way she took our hands, and said everything would be all right will sit in our hearts forever.

She always lent a helping hand, she always led the way. She's touched our hearts in so many ways, it's way too much to say.

My final words to her, wherever she is right now will never change, because, Aunt Tash, I love you!

On the day of her funeral, it took a few minutes to figure out what was wrong - her eternal smile was missing. No matter what was going on in her life, she always had a smile.

We miss you Tash!
