Uncle Bobby met Aunt Essie in Texas. They both had worked at a hospital for those with Tuberculosis. This very lovely lady stole his heart, and all who have the pleasure of knowing her could very easily understand why that happened.

When I was a child every birthday was celebrated with the most adorable pinata that was hand made by Aunt Essie. She made them for all of our birthdays. She is always creating something new in the arts and crafts. Her local church in the Pocono Mountains often depended on her creations for charitable events.

I got to spend some time with Aunt Essie this past February when I traveled to Florida with my sister-in-law Joan. We went to the beach one day, and she came to cousin Paula's home for dinner, and stayed the night. We were bed buddies that night and shared a wonderful conversation about our ideals, concerns, and memories of days gone by. It was a very special experience with this very extraordinary woman, a blessing in my life, who shares my day of birth, the twenty-sixth day of October.
