My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this difficult time, it is so hard to lose your mother.  I remember Aunt Mildred very well and always enjoyed her dry wit.  She is the last of a special breed of women and I will miss that. I'm sure she, Aunt Sophie and my mom, Harriet, are all up in Heaven together just like the good old days.
