Just a thought from a great aunt

Today I went to my great niece Shannon's high school graduation party. She is the oldest of my brother John's grandchildren. Isn't she lucky? What I mean is – lucky she has a great aunt? My brother's grandchildren have a couple other great aunts besides me. What luck!

I never met my great aunts. I only heard one or two of them mentioned, but don't remember any stories about them. My parents were older when my brother and I were born. Both my parents were born in 1904. My grandparents were born in 1860s. My brother and I are both war babies. All my great aunts had died by 1940 five years before I was born.

I wonder if my brother's children have any thoughts about how lucky they are...
