My Auntie Virginia’s passing away was a very sad time. We always called my Aunt by a nickname “Nando”, strange I know but when kids get something started it just stays that way.
We went to say good-bye to her house before we left Baker City. Her neighbors on both sides have horses that my boys adore. One of the neighbor ladies was babysitting my aunt Nando’s poodle, and when the poodle saw my mom (my aunts sister) I think my mom reminded the dog of Nando, the poodle about climbed up in my moms lap. Very sad 🙁
So we said our good-byes and are moving on with life, but Nando will aways be a wonderful part of our memories.
