What can I say about this wonderful woman?? Is it the fact that she was so sweet and so caring to everyone she met? My husband introduced me to her back in 2011. She treated me like I was her own daughter. She always had a smile on her face and would always say to me, "Theres my Kelly girl!" And would walk right over to me and give me a kiss on the cheek. Last time I saw her she was at the grocery store I work at. Of course she had a mask on but needless to say i still saw her bright smile through her mask. She said "come give Aunt Titi a hug." Well, didn't want to argue with her I gave her a very light hug. I have too many memories with her and it hurts that she is gone but her spirit will be around all of forever in our hearts. I love you Aunt Titi. Until we meet again.
