I am so sorry to hear of Tia's passing. She was a wonderful woman and it is true that she is a favorite aunt. I am so glad that I was able to actually spend time with her one summer way back when I was younger. I did not appreciate how special that was at the time. I had the chance to get to know her and my cousins a bit more than I would have under normal circumstances. I regret that I did not get to see her as much or spend as much time with her as I would have liked. She was a funny lady and she'll always hold a special place in my heart.
