My aunt passed away...

Sept. 30th, 2009, at about 10pm Aunt Ginger passed away. She was my mom's older sister...73 years old. Married to my dear Uncle Bob for 53 years, please pray for him...this is all very hard for him. Look at this sweet photo of the two of them:
I have lots of great memories of her. She was an awesome gardener...she grew some of the most beautiful dahlias. She loved growing vegetables, entered the NY State Fair and won numerous blue ribbons! She painted pumpkins and gourds around this time of year. Whenever we went to Rochester, NY, she would be the one to organize a picnic or cookout at her house. When I was little, she would usually send my sisters and I pretty nightgowns for Christmas presents. May she be with God, peaceful and happy!This afternoon, we played UNO together. These are such a fun set...super small cards!!! Tomorrow, we're planning on going apple picking, then Rob is going to get the chimney all ready for fires...it's been getting chilly at night.
