I have fond memories of my Great-Grand-Aunt "eye dee". She was my baby sitter several times and I remember her running me down which is amazing considering she was 66 years my senior. She was one of the sweetest and dearest ladies that I have ever met. She always remembered to give a small gift on special occasions and was always thoughtful of others.
All of my friends and other children who met her called her Aunt "eye dee" which I think she liked very much. She had a twinkle in her eyes that let everyone see the love that was in her heart and soul.
It seems a shame to me that she never had children of her own because she would have been a wonderful mother.
Aunt "eye dee" made my life richer and gave me respect for those who walked lifes path before me.
My last visit with Aunt Ida was bittersweet. Below is my experience with dementia as a young man.
My Great Grandaunt Ida was one of the best people I have ever known. Weird to think that she was my Grandmother's Aunt! She babysat with us when we were little. She had Sunday meals at our house and I loved her so. She always had good things to say and little gifts that came from her heart.
When she was near death I went to see her. I walked in to say hi and she smiled and said "Hi John so nice of you to stop by." I was set back a bit and didn't know what to say. She went on to tell me how much fun the picnic was. How she liked when us boys picked them up in the buggy and had a nice ride to the creek. She laughed and laughed while recalling what a good time she had - even though us boys had brought that keg of beer - she laughed some more. She smiled, giggled, laughed and had a twinkle in her eyes the entire time. I stayed and talked with her about what ever she wanted and she said bye to John when I said goodbye to my Aunt Ida - we pronounced her name as eye-dee. She passed away just a few days after that. I am happy to have been John that afternoon but only because she was so very happy to be wherever that picnic had been.
