HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNT TWILA, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!
Today my Aunt Twila (who from the time I was 2 I called Aunt Caudie because I couldn't say Twila) would be 68? I am remembering her today with laughter and tears, laughter because she was the funniest person I knew and tears because I miss her. For those of you who didn't know her, she had a knack for cracking you up. One of my favorite memories was when I was about 11 years old I had gone to California to visit and while I was there my appendix burst, that part wasn't funny but I had a tummy full of stitches and she came to see me after the surgery and I had to have the nurses make her leave because it hurt too much to laugh and she didn't know how to not be funny, she didn't have to say anything and I would laugh. I am so glad my kids got to know Aunt Twila whom they will only remember as Aunt Twiller because of one of her hysterical stories about a phone solicitor who got her name wrong, I can't talk about her to them without that story coming up. I miss you Aunt Caudie and I know you are dancing and singing in Heaven with Gram and Uncle Rick and Sammy and all of the others who have gone before us, I love you and I know we will laugh together again someday.
