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.
