her Life
So I met the most amazing person in the world. A woman who would enter my life  and change it for ever. I was just 11 years old and we are moving yet again but this move was going to change my life. Joni the day I met you was the first time I actually felt safe and felt like I had a family. You were a friend to my mom and her  gf but to me it was more. Your weren't just a friend to me.  You were a mentor friend role model hero queen aunt and a mother figure to me. You took me in as one of you own kid's always in my corner even if I was messing up.  No one could tell you that I wasn't family because you would always ask one question what is family and everyone would say blood is family and you would say no. Love being there thru the sunny days but there for them stormy days as well and then she would say this girl will always be in my family.  I was like the daughter she never got to have she would say. Family is something I know because of my biggest fan my aunt Joni.  I am not able to tell much about her life cause I didn't have to know were you came from to know were you where going.  I can say that you had three boys and three step sons and one step daughter and two brothers.  And a niece that would give her life for you.  And wish I could get a birthday phone call or a smile or a hug. Or a random moment of me grabbing your face and kissing your forehead.  Little things are so precious.

My birthdays just haven't been the same. Because I don't get them 12:01 am phone calls just so that you would be the first person to tell me happy birthday.  You never treated me differently than one of your own kids. I know what family means because of you. 

Your a queen

I remember one night I was really down and out. I remember aunt joni coming into my room asking what was wrong and after I got done telling her what was bothering me.  She looked me dead in my eyes and said if you dont remember anything else I ever say to you I want you to remember this one thing. 
Then she proceeds to tell me 
You are a queen your the only one that can stop your shine remember that your heart is to big and not everyone deserves your love. Then said chin up and give me a hug. I said thanks and she said the most beautiful part of me was my heart but my worst enemy because I wanted to save everyone and everything and couldn't and it got me down all the time. I sure miss our talks

I remember aunt joni coming home from the neighborhood's house she was drunk. I remember asking her if she was drunk and joni replied nope cause that means I would have drank and I didn't drink I ate my zert. All I could do is laugh.
