Tante Ilse

Tante Ilse passed yesterday.
Tante Ilse had wit, charisma and above all heart.
Tante Ilse was my great-aunt and a big time favorite of mine. I think she was a favorite of everyone, including of my husband's.
Diaspora sucks mostly. When your family -and friends- are spread around the globe you always miss someone or something: a wedding, a birth - a goodbye.
I wanted Tante Ilse to meet my son.They did not meet.
But I know they would have really liked each other.
Tante Ilse, you are in my heart.

K, U & H - I am thinking of you.
