You were the second person I called after the fire (after my parents).
You said you were going to come help so you loaded your truck and drove.
You drove 1333.93 miles.
You came with your truck full of stuff. From dishes and table clothes to sheets and toys.
You washed every dish in my kitchen. I think you spent more time at the sink, then you did in bed.
You made Tony his first birthday cake in this house. You let the kids lick the beaters.
You bought an ice-cream maker and taught us how to make homemade ice-cream... Just like I remember doing with you when I was a little girl.
You bought us a flag and put up the flag pole on our front porch.
When we didn't have furniture, you made a table out of boxes.
You loved on my kiddos and spent time with them. You spoiled them. You spoiled us.
You slept on a cot for a week.
You stepped on Lego's and tripped over baby dolls.
You used your computer as a DVD player to entertain my babies.
You comforted us.
You fed us. You cleaned up after us. You helped us get settled.
You got to see Tobin to his first day of school. What a special memory he will always have!
We spent time hanging out on the front porch and going to antique stores.
We spent hours at a certain retail store (that starts with a "W").
We loaded up on necessities we couldn't live without.
You gave advice.
You loved on us.
We cried together, then we laughed until we cried again.
You got to bond with Caroline, our sweet girl.
The one we named after you, because you are so special to us.
We said goodbye. You drove 1333.93 miles back home.
We miss YOU Aunt Carol!
We love YOU Aunt Carol!
We are thankful for YOU Aunt Carol!
