My lovely Aunt Elaine

 My Sweet aunt Elaine is one of my favorite people in the world. Pictured above in snapshots from earlier times). She moved down to Florida about 8 years ago  with her husband Nelson- she lives on the other side of the state from me. She moved into a older adult mobile home community and she is the social maven of the neighborhood. She has card or board games at her house frequently, keeps a beautiful creatively eclectic house and is so much fun to be around.

She just found out she has stage four liver cancer. She was acting like she didn't mind. That she wouldn't pursue treatment. Apparently there is a chance for her with a liver transplant.

I hope it happens.

My daughter has had the occasion to be around her only once since she was a baby. She visited us at the beach condo we rented the summer Jamie was five and Jamie LOVED her. Aunt Elainedrew in the sand with Jamie, ran through the waves with Jamie and just generally cut up and stole my baby's heart. The cutest video ever of my sweet Aunt Elaine talking baby talk to my baby is here. Go see it and see how sweet she is...

Pray for her...I love her so.
