Happy Birthday in Heaven, Aunt Joanne. This is the one-year anniversary of the last time I saw you in person. Or should I say, the last time you saw me. The next times I saw you were all in the ICU, after the choking-on-food incident that left you without detectable brain function.
I'm sure your spirit knew we were there, but your body had lost all capability of perceiving its surroundings by that point.
Say "Hello" to Grandmom and Grandpop, and Aunt Theresa and Uncle Nicky, and Great Grandpop.
