I was called to the hospital this morning~ Titi had taken a turn for the worse....everything was shutting down. My cousin and I assembled the family to say our goodbyes...everyone came. She left us at noon and later in the afternoon my cousin had everything shut off ~ with everyone in the room and my cousin Sandi and I holding her hand~ she left us for good. I don't know what it is going to be like without her...I just adored her. She was so wonderful and kind and loving and she meant the world too me. The very last sister~ gone....She told me Friday...if something happens to me remember I am with the Lord. So these tears that just won't stop are not because I have no hope...simply because I will miss her. I have nothing but wonderful memories of her as a child and than with my own children....they were/are crazy about her. She was a tiny woman and she would run and play with the kids. I remember her playing football with my son when he was a toddler. She was famous for her rice and gandules....I remember her climbing my fruit trees with the kids when they were little...taking care of me when I was so sick and pregnant with my last~ Gabby....Simply said she was the most wonderful great-aunt anyone could wish for...and she will forever be missed and always loved. I know she is rejoicing to be with her beloved son and family again~ I know she was welcomed with shouts of joy...I will take everything she taught me through life and be the better for it~ I love you!
