Since Pops was an only child and we were raised near his family the only aunts and uncles I saw regularly were Grandma and Grandpa’s siblings. My life was filled with great aunts and uncles whose kids were grown, it was more like having auxiliary grandparents. Most of Grandma’s siblings lived in either California or Las Vegas. Grandma had 7 siblings.
I miss you Aunty Boo Boo - you taught me some of life's most important lessons, like cigarette lighters are good for keeping toddlers occupied. Seriously - you put the "Great" in Great Aunt!
