Aunt SarahLu was my mother's (Donna) younger sister. I remember having a wonderful visit with her and Uncle Ted
and their family the summer after my junior year in college. They showed me a great time and were very, very kind to me. In the spring of 1992 when my beloved mother was dying of cancer, Aunt SarahLu graciously and selflessly agreed to come out to Arizona to help my sister, Mary, and I take care of her. We were very grateful for her support and assistance. I was especially appreciative of her loving kindness to my then six year old daughter, Katie. Later on, after Uncle Ted passed away, I spent a week with Aunt SarahLu at their ranch in Saguache. It was at that visit that she and I found her a "new" dog at the nearby ASPCA. That dog turned out to be her beloved "Lucky" that she loved and treasured for many years. She named him Lucky because she said she was lucky she found him. I always thought the dog was lucky to have found her! It was also at that visit that we went to the local museum in Saguache. We were both impressed by the quality of the museum given its location in such a small and out-of-the -way place. She mused that she might like to work there as a volunteer. After I had returned home to Arizona, she had indeed started working there and told me how much she enjoyed it and what she was learning about the area. I am ashamed to admit that I didn't call or write to Aunt SarahLu as much as I should have in the years following that visit, but I did and do hold her very close in my heart, and will forever be grateful to her for her love, kindness and support during some very difficult times in my life.
