Susan’s beautiful thank-you note brought tears to Velma’s eyes.
“‘Auntie’ Velma – I like the sound of that, thank you so much” between tears.
Velma floated her handmade gift to the new mother.
Velma held the baby with a lump in her throat.
No children of her own.
She looked back at the house-
the prettiest sight.
She would be a marvelous, fun, doting aunt.
