My Aunt Freda, my Godmother, my father's sister,his closest sister, they were never apart growing up... my closest kindred aunt...the one I am most like...She is the only mother I have left now. She is my mother and my father...she looks just like my father...her wedding picture looks like my father in a wedding dress and lipstick...I always said that affectionately. My Aunt Freda is always on the cutting edge of fashion..always timeless and classic and dressed to the T. My Aunt Freda is still full of life, and viv and full of family knowledge. She is the matriarch of the family...I am next in line. She is the one I always wanted to be like. Her daughter is my cousin...we are sisters of different mothers although we both know that her mother is my mother too, and she doesn't mind sharing. We are kindred spirits the three of us. We live in different states of the United States..but my heart is always there. We have witnessed the good spirits of our relatives at her house... We have a spiritual bond that can never be broken...My Aunt Freda and Me.
