My “GREAT” Aunt Eleanor was exactly that a GREAT AUNT!! She used to say to me … I am not that great and laugh! We have had so many wonderful times together… she loved to hang out at McDonald’s with me and the kids when we would visit! She would even sit on Ronald’s lap and make the giggle! We would go on walks in earlier days and visit Uncle Hank at the cemetery. We also made the road trip with Aunt Eleanor and my 3 young children to Maryville Tennessee. We visited Larry Johnson . Larry made us all laugh! Was a very fun trip… before we left .. Aunt Eleanor made sure the kids had fun trip things to do! She was the Greatest and I will miss my visits with her sooo much! We always said I love you see you next time ! I love you Great Aunt Eleanor see next time!
