I see it....

Thank you, everyone, for leaving such kind comments on my last post. I really appreciate your expressions of sympathy. It was a sad weekend, but then, we're supposed to be sad when we lose a loved one. I wouldn't have it any other way. Grief honors them, in a way, at least in my mind. It did help me to write about her, a little bit, so I do appreciate your bearing with the sad topic.

Several of you mentioned a resemblance between myself and my Aunt Kathie, and I never really saw it before, but, I think I see it now:

That picture on the right is my old driver's license mugshot taken in 2000. Back when I still had bangs and wore contacts. (I tossed in the towel on both those battles, and now my bangs are grown out and my vision is corrected with glasses.)

Anyway, I am honored to carry with me some resemblance of my aunt. I just wish I'd seen her in person recently. Perhaps in the next life.

Could be the same person! Amazing how the genes work, eh?
