In recent years we havent really spoken, its not any flaw on either of our parts its just time ticking. My memories of you are ones that wont leave my head anytime soon. I remember going to your house when I was 7 or 8 and walking past your clown collection and being scared of them because they reminded me of chucky. I remember you telling me that they watch over me and you gave me this tiny clown with yellow polka dotted onesie on and bright pink hair you said this ones one of my favourites and he will watch over you. I still have him I named him sir watches a lot. I took him everywhere with me I even brought him to school with me, he became a huge joke in my class he would appear all over our class at the oddest times but he would always end up back in my locker at the end of my day. I remember you spoiling me with lots of sweets and listening to me ramble about any and everything. Answering every stupid question I ever had, usually while you broke apart those nuts while my brother was busy bothering uncle terry about every little question that popped into his head. You both filled that void of grandparents growing up and I regret not speaking with you as often as uncle terry, I regret letting myself get in the way of that. Even though I havent been present in recent years I was always aware that I would always have a home and place with you. And for that I will always love you.
Goodbye aunt Betty, Ill see you soon.
