19401209 - Louise Kelley - 20120603:1410

I don't remember many things from being little, but I know when I get flashes of my earliest memories I can think of no other person that loved me like my Aunt Louise.  I remember riding in the car with her and when we drove past the penitentiary in Mansfield she would tell me that is where the bad boys go and she never wanted to see me in there, or she would want to drop me off, depending on the day :-)  She would walk around her house in the summer in her bra.  She laughed with me, spent time with me and treated me as her own son.  She was always very funny and cheerful and witty.  Very lively and fun to be around.  I always knew which present was from here; she would wrap her presents in the cartoons she saved from the paper.  She didn't like dogs and loved the Saturday Night Live 'Church Lady' and would act like her.  I knew she would always be there for me.  I have her phone number memorized and remember having a guy call her the night I had my big accident; she was there.  Always a fun, fantastic part of my life.  I love my Aunt Louise and know tonight she is where she wants to be.  See you Weezer, tell Burton and Grandma Winger I said hi.

I can hear her say it now 'I'll see you in the funnies'...
