Today is the birthday of my Aunt Letty. She should turn 72 years old. Unfortunately, she went to heaven to join God. Aunt Letty is my Mom’s big sister. They are only two years apart. My Mom used to do my Aunt Letty’s laundry. I also cleaned her house while my Mom is doing their laundry.
My Aunt Letty is like my second mother. I missed her so very much. She is the best aunt in the entire world. She helped my family a lot and especially me. She helped me with my school and even when I was applying for a job. She helped me to pass all the job requirements. I will never ever forget my Aunt Letty. We have happy memories together as aunt and niece. I love her very much.
I did not see her for the last time when she went to heaven. I did visit her grave last year when my daughter and I visited the Philippines. My Mom and my niece was with us too. We brought her flowers. I know that she loved flowers. It was a very warm day. We said our prayers and stayed in her grave for a while.
It is very hard for me to talk to her through prayers. I missed her advice. I missed our joke and the laughter we had. I missed the time when we ate together in her house after finishing the laundry and cleaned her house. My Aunt has the money but she stays humble which I loved about her.
Happy birthday Aunt Letty and I know that you are looking down from heaven for us. I want to say thank you very much for everything. I love you so very much.
