Here's to the Auntie's out there who were often, in loco parentis, and did a good job when called upon. Some are quiet, simple, and prepare good lunches. Others are loving, giving, and may take you to a circus. One Auntie I know will talk your ear off. Another is stern, wise, yet hospitable. One auntie, is a fun-loving person, very giving, and likes to buy things at rummage sales (for other people.) Moms and Mothers are invaluable and irreplaceable, but aunties, are pretty good as well.
