I have this aunt that I just simply adore. Her name is Eloise, but she's got nicknames a mile long between being a mom, sister, aunt, grandmother and great-grandmother. I affectionately call her Jelloise - always have since I was a kid. She stands about a peep above 4 feet tall. She's 87, but often behaves like she is 27.....many of us tiring out before she does. She gives these incredible hugs that make you never want to let go.You can't help but smile whenever you think of her. She may be tiny, but boy she's got the heart of a giant. In recent years I've spent more time with her than ever - because as you grow up you learn to appreciate these special people in your lives more. I love her spirit, our chats and the words she always whispers in your ear to you before you leave ~ "I love you one million pecks."
