My Favorite Aunt

Throughout the ages there have been numerous famous women called Beatrice.

My aunt Beatrice wasn’t famous but nevertheless, she was an icon in my eyes.

She wore many hats during her 88 years and pursued all with flair and style.

She was sassy and classy

Sympathetic and authentic

She was smart with a loving heart

She was adventurous

She was spontaneous

She was all about family and making memories

I adored her

I implored her

Don’t go – but alas it was her time

You reside within my heart

For now we must part

Thank you auntie Bea
