January 5, 2006Auntie Ally aka Lala was like a second mother to me when I was a young..We lived next door to each other for most of my childhod.. I think I spent more time at her house, than my own..and she was always there for me when I got in trouble or got hurt..I loved nibbling on her homeade pie dough and remember homeade noodles hanging on chairs to dry..I lunched on lard sprinkled with sugar sandwiches with Uncle Ritchie, which just don’t taste like they use to now..I guess they were like parents to me because Uncle Ritchie was my dads brother, and Auntie Ally was my moms sister..You can’t get any closer relation than that…Over the years I haven’t had the opportunity to see her or visit as much as I would have liked to, so when we moved her back down here from Crivitz, I promised her I would help her in any way I could..I called her every nite, to see that she was ok and stopped over every other nite to visit and help her with errands…I knew she was alone now, since she lost both Darlene and Uncle Richie and wanted to repay her for all her kindness to me when I was a child..She will be missed by all and i’m glad I had the opportunity to rekindle our relationship we had so many years ago. I’m only sorry it couldn’t have been longer..Thank you for letting me take care of you, like you did for me so long ago…You will be truly missed by all…God Bless…
