What a beautiful, sweet soul we have lost ... In the past couple of days , I have thought about my childhood memories and the moments you made them special for me. Like the time at Christmas you had me try on a pair of beautiful house slippers, that you had bought for your oldest daughter Sharon. Since Sharon and I were the same age you told me you wanted me to try them on to make sure they would fit her. I thought Sharon was the luckiest girl in the word, as they were the most beautiful house slippers I had ever seen, I was probably 10 years old or so.. They were a turquoise, green brocade with gold thread running through them. Turquoise fur lined the top and had a pointy toe. We spent Christmas at The Johns house when we where little. They had the most beautiful Christmas tree with the old fashion bubble lights. I would sit there for hours starring at the lights. Christmas morning I opened my present from Aunt Vida is was those beautiful slippers she had had me try on. What a precious memory for me. Aunt Vida was such a sweet and loving person. Fragile and delicate, but very strong. I love you Aunt Vida and your memories will always be in my heart. Rest in Peace my sweet Aunt. Love Always, Brenda Jones
