Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Happy Birthday Aunt Vi!


Today is Aunt Vi’s 103rd birthday.

At age 95.

It’s her first up in heaven with all her sisters and most of her brothers, plus her mom and dad who she talked about regularly and missed every day.

96th birthday

I’ve heard about some of the parties the family had when they were all younger. I can almost imagine the fun they’re having up there today, dancing and hugging, playing cards and softball and telling stories while they enjoy a huge potluck.

On her 100th birthday.

I’m sure everyone there is glad to have her back in the fold, but we sort of miss her back here.

Still, I know her 103rd birthday is infinitely better than her 102nd was.

102nd birthday.

Happy Birthday Aunt Vi, now you’re young again and will be forever.

The light shines on her now.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. 102 years is pretty long. I’m sure she is in a far better place for 103.


  2. Aw, I feel like I knew your Aunt Vi, too! I know you miss her, but I’m glad you can envision her dancing, happy, young, and healthy in the Afterlife.


  3. How amazing that Aunt Vi had more than a century of joy on this earth. May she continue to have a great time reuniting with loved ones in heaven.


  4. What a lovely way to share her memory, I remember her from your many posts. Happy Birthday in heaven to her.


  5. Aunts are special, good to have good memories of her and for her:)


  6. What a stylish woman. I’m sure she’s responsible for some extra light from above. She lived life with pizzazz, you go Aunt Vi.
