There is a story about Aunt Ernestine - My mom wanted to see her sister. So we took off for Albuquerque, New Mexico. We arrived on a Wednesday and visited all afternoon with her. Mom and Ernestine sitting with their feet on their walkers holding hands. It was very touching. They were really glad they got to see each other.

We left and returned home.

Saturday they called and told us that Aunt Ernestine had died. I am so glad that I took the time to take my mother out to see her sister for 1 last time.
