My Aunt June, or Junie as I often called her, entered my life when I was just a few months old and was a major part of it until just moments before she passed. She was more like a second mom than an aunt and we formed a very special bond from the very beginning which only grew stronger as the years went by. Her life was so full between her dogs, her teaching, her friends, her house and her garden. I don't know how she did it all as a single lady, she was a groundbreaker in so many ways. She was also such a fun person to be around and had an infectious laugh. She loved her dogs like they were her kids, and held her friends and family close to her heart. Even as her Alzheimer's grew worse and worse, elements of her sweet and loving nature still shone through. I am so proud of her for putting up the good fight until the very end. I loved her so much, miss her mightily and will never forget her.
