My dearest Aunt Valerie passed Thursday July 24, 2014. She was the best aunt I could wish for. I am so fortunate that I got to have her as my aunt. Unfortunately she lost her battle against cancer.
When I was young I stayed at her house. I loved it there, she just let me be. She helped me whenever I needed her, without judging me. She listened, and always tried to make me see the good things in others. I miss those days growing up in Harvard Yard. I hope that l am a little bit like her, because she made the world a better place for many people.
I still regret it that I couldn’t be there for her when she was dying. Her last days she spent with the people she loved and wanted to have surrounding her.
And to honor her, I will try to live my life the way she did, without judging people, and helping animals in need.
