As long as I can remember (so many great memories), when I was a little girl and all the way up to the last time I saw Aunt Evelyn I would come to her house and she would play me a Boogie Woogie on her piano. She always said it was very hard for her because she had short fingers. Her hands would fly over them keys and I will never forget it...... I always called her and talk to her on the phone, then she got a cell phone and got to talk more often. I am so going to miss my Aunt but I know she is in a better place than this world right now. She was an Angel on this earth and now she is an Angel up above. I love you Aunt Evelyn.
