Poet's Notes about The Poem

When Mary called me and told me I cried with her.

I wasn't ready for her big sister my Momma to go home either so, I do understand the pain.

My aunt has gone into the presence of the LORD. She won't have to suffer any more pain from sickness and people who let her down, Aunt Louise you taught more than you'll ever know. Having you as my only Aunt you were the fourth born of your mother my Granny 5 children. Walter 2nd born left first. Alice the first born went home 2ND and the you the 4TH born went home have gone home 3RD all of y'all so very missed although I only remember a little about my uncle Walter I do remember him calling me Chuty and Loving my chubby round cheeks on my face. You are the people God allowed me to be part of for a brief time in my life you are and were Loved so Granny Martha Young-Carter we miss you Uncle Walter Carter we miss you Mary Alice Carter you are missed Etta Louise Carter-Brown WE MISS You and Love you dearly.
