Aunt Roe, is my Mom's sister and my Godmother. Her health has been deteriorating but today is her birthday so I am trying to only think of the positives. Aunt Roe took me to Hawaii when I was twelve. It was incredible. Snorkeling, exploring volcanoes, helicopter rides and hula dancing. I was nervous that I would be so homesick without my Mom and Dad but she made sure we were busy with fun activities everyday. I miss our phone conversations. Even though they were extremely long sometimes, she always made me feel great about myself and proud of what I had accomplished. She also allowed me to drive her white Mustang convertible all over town when I was sixteen. My friends and I thought we were so cool riding around with the top down with our favorite mix tape in the cassette player. She is a tough women but always has her heart in the right place. Happy Birthday Aunt Roe!
