94 Years Remembered in 94 Days-Post 23 (Teresa getting her hair cut here in Gilbert)

Yesterday was the funeral at St. Mary's for our dear Aunt Teresa.   I will be posting more later about all of the events.  It is too emotional for me to write about it now.  I need to process some things.

I went to get my hair cut on Friday and Jen, our hairdresser, also cut Teresa's hair after she moved up her with us.   

She loved Teresa and Teresa loved her.   Jen reminded me about one of the first times I brought her to get her haircut and Jen asked her if she would like something to drink.   She told Jen that she would.   She ordered a vodka tonic!!   Jen obviously is in the hair business, not the bar business and offered her some water instead.   We had a good laugh about it.

When I was telling Kerri about this after I got home, she reminded me of the time when her class came to Douglas for their field trip.  It was the beginning of her really starting to slip.   All the fourth graders were there, and Teresa asked one of Kerri's kids to please fix her a vodka tonic.   I had forgotten that story.

So many great and fun memories that can never be taken away!! 

And today would have been Teresa's 95th birthday.   I am hoping she is having a great celebration with all of her family and friends who were there to greet her a few weeks ago.    I am a bit sad that we aren't going out for her birthday dinner tonight.
