great.AUNT

This is my great aunt Roberta (or "Robbie" or "Bertie") . She is 89 years old and this is her best friend of 60 years Lois, who is 96. They are both a ray of sunshine in my life. I am so grateful for their smiles and laughter despite the hardships of aging and loneliness. Neither of them ever complain. There are so many elderly who have been forgotten. If you are looking for volunteer opportunities I encourage you to visit your local elderly care facility and share your talents and time. 

Some of my favorite lines these gals say are: 

"I'm in good shape for the shape I'm in."  

"At my age, I don't even buy green bananas."
