Auntie M was one of a kind. Never married, a home body until she retired, then, she travelled the world. She lived with us 3.5+ years. She was self-sufficient almost to the end. She lived 100 years and 10 months.
born an introvert
ruled by structure and order
pristine and proper
yet fiercely independent
stubborn to the end of time
