Aunt Chrissie was a major factor, and the only person in my life at the time that I could turn to, and Iím proud to write and let people know how much she meant to me, and why I write so much about her

She told me that if I go out in to the world and do good then it would be returned four fold.

Aunt Chrissie


Aunt Chrissie our mother, our friend

Looked after us, cared for us

Nurtured us, saw that we were fed

She talked to us, and listened when we spoke

Laughed with us when we were happy

Cried with us when we were sad


Aunt Chrissie deaf and blind

Her life was hard and cruel

She was strong and kind

Instilled in us right from wrong

Stood stalwart at our side when we strayed

Taught us to see the world around us

Showed us how to be brave


Her laughter on the swings

Creaking chains can still be heard


Aunt Chrissie I know youíre at my side

Helping me, coaxing me, while I write

Iíve tried to be the best for you

Tried with all my might

Iíve strayed from your guiding hand

Your teachings of yesteryear

Forgiveness is your wondrous light

Please donít shed a tear

Save a place for me, on your right

My aunt Min (MIldred) was my idol when growing up. She covered up he tears in my dresses from Mom, my fights with my cousin her daughter, and Donna says her Mom always took my part over hers. WHy, because I was the oldest by 2 years?
