We took them out to lunch and enjoyed a full day of listening to stories from both of them about the past adventures they had. All very interesting I might say.
Here you see them together as we waited for our lunch, at a cute little diner. Aunt Evelyn is 92 and Aunt Caroline is 90.
When it was time for us to leave, they sat facing each other holding hands, and saying their good byes, I wanted to catch the moment so bad with my camera but didn't have the heart to interfere with the tenderness of the whole scene. They both know they may never see each other in this life and were talking about how they will meet up in heaven and all the other wonderful people who will be there that have gone on before them. Including both of their beloved husbands and all of Aunt Evelyn's five children. All of us witnessing that end to a full day had tears in our eyes, it was just so touching.
Aunt Caroline will be here with us for a few more weeks, so we are trying to fill her days with just enough activity of meeting up with old friends, but giving her breathing room to rest at the same time.
Both of these ladies are real troopers and the adventures, travels, and experiences they have had over the span of their lives is amazing to hear about.
