I believe Aunt Kate is in her nineties, or at least very close to it and has always been a feisty little woman. I like to think that since I'm little and according to Chad tend to be feisty at times, too that I have a long life ahead of me just like Aunt Kate.
I have fond memories of visiting her as a child when we would make trips to Wisconsin (my birth state). She had a happy Pomeranian I liked to give treats to and I can still vividly picture her back yard, which was the only place I played in the real kind of snow until moving here to West Virginia. She liked hens and roosters, and they were all over her home. I haven't been to her house in many years, but I suspect it looks exactly the same.
Aunt Kate is a good person. She took care of my mama in some very difficult times of her life and has given all the children of the family so many thoughts over the years, making sure not to miss a birthday or Christmas. One thing everyone knows and loves Aunt Kate for is her crocheted slippers. She has kept many a family member's feet warm for decades now!
She lives alone, and so I worry about her sometimes, but for the most part, I know she is strong and independent. I admire that in her and hope that I am like her throughout my years.
