My wonderful Aunt Allene’s passing has brought another moment of great loss and sadness. It is hard not to have these feelings, for she was with my sisters and me for our entire lives, and she was there for us when we most needed her. Like my Uncle. They were my oldest friends, together. How could we have asked her for more? We would not wish her to suffer. She gave us a lifetime of love and kindness, of caring and fun. At the age of 95, she made a courageous and clear-minded decision to let it be and to join her soul mate, my dear, brave and funny Uncle Russ. She gave us all so much, the last of my parents’ generation. So much to remember and so much to miss. Even in this last year, she gave me strength. She helped me prepare for losing Peter by recounting her own experiences. She was real, solid, authentic —she was always who she was, a woman with many talents, a moral compass and a heart full of kindness and humor, who was even willing to talk to teenagers! She was a rock, but a rock with a beautiful soul. I know that her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will suffer for missing her. We all shall. Yet we shall have so many wonderful memories. I love you Auntie.

Please accept my condolences. 95 years is a long time for us, but we can look forward to the resurrection promised in the Bible. Then we can enjoy living forever when there is no more sickness and death. May this hope bring you comfort now. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4)
