Aunt Terry

The next oldest daughter

Aunt Terrry sent this to me in 1999.  One of the things Terry loved to do is create poetry.  This is her poem to her sister Rae.

My memories of sister Rae


My dear sister Rae

Like her there's no other

To us kids, long ago,

She was our second mother.

She always helped Mom

Without any fuss

And on the beach

kept watch over us.

She took us on picnics

and to the zoo

She filled our lunch bags

with sandwiches too

The trips to the museums

And to Luna Park

Were so much fun

and such a lark.

I still remember

that wonderful day

We went to the Statue

of Liberty, with Rae.

She taught us everything

a family should be

With the love and the caring

you can feel and see

She enriched our lives

in so many ways

I'll be grateful to RAE

the rest of my days.

from your kid sister, TERRY (5/6/99)
