Who is your favourite person in your extended family?
My favourite relative in my extended family is probably my Aunt Dorothy Mae. She is my mother’s second to youngest sister and her only remaining living sibling. I used to love to go to her house when we went to Virginia to visit in the summer because she had two sons, one of whom was my age and I got to go to school with him for a day. She was a good cook and has a jolly personality. She is interested in everyone of her nieces and nephews and cares a lot about all of us.
She has been through terrible trials in her life. Her eldest son, who was my age, died suddenly of a heart attack at age 42. Both he husband and younger son died of Huntingson’s disease. She cared for both of them. She has rheumatoid arthritis but it is well controlled, thank God. Her grandchildren are good to her and love her very much. She is the glue that holds together our maternal side of our family. All the cousins care very much for her because she is a good God fearing woman who loves us all. I love my Aunt Dot Mae and am so glad she is in my life.
