To my Aunt Cherie,
I know you're not going to be able to read it but others will do let's consider this an open letter.
Growing up you was always there for me. You would take me to the Zoo, Seaworld and even to see KITT from Knight Rider when they had the car on display for a mobile tour back in the mid 80's.
Fast forward to 5 years ago, you started showing signs of memory loss. You being you got nosy and tripped one day and broke your foot and hit your head. You called me but didn't want to go to the hospital. We was glad you went they seen evidence of mild cognitive impairment. It became evident you couldn't manage your house anymore so we moved you into an apartment. You were cranky and irritated most days as you hated asking for help. You wasn't allowed to drive. I know you hated that. I did your shopping, I took out your trash and paid your bills. I did what needed to be done to help take care of you.
Fast forward to October of last year it became more evident you really couldn't be on your own anymore. Lori and I decided to move you into our home. I've never seen you happier while living with us these last few months. It took some adjustment. It wasn't sunshine and rainbows. You loved having our doggies and companions. Especially Loki. He wanders around looks for you every night.
I just wanted to say Thank you for being my Aunt. Thank you for always loving me like your own child. You were a pain in the rear at times but I still loved you none the less. I always have and I always will. I also want to say thank you for accepting Lori and Katie into our family after Debbie died. That meant the world to me. You guys all developed a very special bond and we are all grateful to have lived in the time you did.
God Bless your soul and I am glad you're no longer sick and now at peace.

Cherie was such a sweet, caring person. In the 1980-1981, I rode home with her from our Ohio Bell/Brecksville work place. She also attended Goss Memorial Church with her mom and was in the choir with me. So thankful to have known this sweet lady. She is now in the arms of Jesus with her loved ones. Prayers to your family in the loss of this sweet lady.

Well, I honestly thought you would live to be 100 years old. The last five years have been a challenge for you and for all of us as a family. I'm not going to go into the details here but there was days you made things very difficult. I know you was not very happy about how much your life changed after your dementia diagnosis. You couldn't drive, you had some memory and mobility issues too. You was in constant pain in your back. It was heart breaking to watch. I worked very hard to help you, I paid your bills, I did your shopping and took out your trash. It wasn't because I had to. I did it because I wanted to help out as much as I could. We moved you in with us back in October because it was quite evident you needed some extra help. I'm glad we got to spend those last few months with you. I feel awful that you got sick. I'm sorry we wasn't allowed to come to the hospital to see you. They had very strict Covid protocols for Covid patients. It sucks because we had 3 appointments made for you to get the vaccine. The first 2 you didn't want to go. First time you had a headache and the 2nd you didn't want to go out because of your hair. You got sick just after I made the 3rd appointment. I'm just glad you're not in any pain anymore and now you're with the family you been longing to be with again. You got to go peacefully and that I'm grateful for that. I know you missed all of the family members in Heaven you been missing so terribly for so long. I hope you are enjoying catching up with all them.
I'll say this in closing you was the most stubborn person I ever knew and I mean this in a nice way and I've told you this before but you was a huge pain in the butt. I wouldn't dare have changed a thing. Thank you for being a loving Aunt. I know you loved me as your own child and I am eternally grateful. I will always remember and love you and I hope you can finally Rest In Peace.
I love you Aunt Cherie and God Bless your soul.
