    My Aunt Helen. Thinking of the old days when we used to go to Milburn during the summer or when my dad said let’s go to Milburn. Those were family times and I don’t think I’ve experienced that much family gathering since then. So many people in the house and so much food! The older folks used to go to The Bucket?. My dad, Cliff would share memories about his siblings, and he would say Helen and my sister Amber were so much alike. The last time I was with Aunt Helen, we were getting BBQ and I told her I was keeping the change…she said…give me my money back! I used to visit her and my uncle Donald at a facility in North Tulsa where we would watch a Cowboy or Thunder game. I always felt comfortable in her presence as if everything was okay-rejuvenating. She looked like her mom, my grandmother. I may not see my Ward family much, but my love for them keeps me grounded coz I know the family I belong to. This is a true testament of God has the final say. She out lived the timeframe the drs tried to give her. I love you Aunt Helen. Thanks for showing me how to hold my head up and check folk when I need to.
