And my dear Aunt Dot has a birthday today as well. She is a great neighbor, amazing Aunt, faithful friend and great travel partner. I am so thankful for an Aunt who has become a great friend. She has been a third parent to me and my siblings and another Beppe to the great group of kids in our family. Aunt Dot is a collector of stories and is faithful in sharing those stories through translated letters from Dutch relatives old pictures and editor of 25+ years of Treasured Ties, our family newsletter.IMG_0480

Aunt Dot is a gem, a kind soul, an analytical thinker, a quiet presence, an organizer, a proofreader, a loyal friend.

But you are loved and held dear by us all! Happy 64th birthday. May this year bring you good health, peace in each day and an abundance of God’s goodness. Much Love, Trish
