Aunt Liisa in memoriam

Today was the memorial service for my aunt Liisa, my mom's younger sister and my godmother. I did not realise how much I'd miss her until today. Today I finally understood that she's no longer with us.

I on the left, Liisa in the middle and my sister on the right. This is one of my earliest memories, we're having ice cream together. I cannot remember the exact year, but looking at my sister I'd say 1976 or 1977.

I also realised that aunt Liisa was the catalyst in the process that brought Jussi and me together, so I have a lot to be grateful for.

I had broken up with my boyfriend some time ago, and I had gone out on a date with a guy who never called again. Aunt Liisa told me not to sit and wait but to contact him, and so I did - and got no response. (By the way, that guy was allergic to cats and I had Frank, so would you have seen a future for us anyway?)

After that I complained to a friend about the situation and asked why guys do that and am I doomed to be all alone (and all that, you know the drill). He also told me not to sit and wait and actually forced to me to do something about it, so that's how I eventually met Jussi.

And I miss my aunt a lot.
