I grew up dearly loving my aunts and uncles. They were an important part of my life. In todays society many of them are raising their nie.

Thank you for the wonderful memories

When I was a girl my favorite times were spent with my Aunt Bea. She always seemed to make me feel safe, secure, and loved.

Everything we did together was fun. She could even make household chores fun. She'd make up games and challenges and before you know it all of your chores were over.

Every word that came out of my mouth seemed to be of the upmost importance. As we sat at the kitchen table talking she would make it seem as though what I was saying was worth listening too. There was nothing I couldn't tell her.

My Aunt left this world when I was 18 years old, more years ago than I want to remember. She is still in my heart. There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss her.

Thank you Aunt Bea for all of the wonderful memories and the heart full of love. With her love she made me at I am today. She helped m believe in myself, she made me feel loved.

My favorite Aunt quote:

"Aunt: A cherished friend, friend and personal cheerleader who will always see you through rose-colored glasses." Anonymous

Aunt and Uncle Poem

My aunts and uncles are one of a kind,

A liitle goofy but are quite a great find.

They like to play the same silly games,

And are always calling me strange little names.

They love to hug and kiss, tickle and squeeze,

And sometimes I even bounce on their knees.

I like it so much I can't help but grin,

I know its their hearts I'll surely win.

      I have an aunt who took care of me when i was 4 to 5 years-old, though I was hard to take care of , she never yelled or shouted at me once, she was always patient and nice, funny to me. I wish i could have a time machine then i would go back to the time when she was taking care of me, these memories will remain forever in my heart

      Hey, Koffee, this is great! I know what you mean about finding quotes about aunts and uncles -- you have done a superb job! Did you know that I included this hub as a feature on the one I just wrote? I wasn't sure if you saw it.

      Like you, I also grew up around a lot of aunts and uncles. Some were fun (like my singing Aunt Dale) others were a bit odd (no names here) but I was required to kiss them all before we left anywhere. (That was a lot of kissing!) I also remember I had a couple of uncles that scared me when I was really little, because they were so loud and big.

      This was great ... you took me down memory lane. Take care!

      Lyanne, children are wonderful. How lucky all of you neices and nephews are to have such a loving aunt. It is a shame that you never got the chance to spend time with any of your aunts and uncles. Thanks for your comment.

      Aunts and uncles are nice, unless they decide to deceive, then look out.

      GOod points here, though. Some can be good folks.

      Our family had a Great-Uncle who always greeted us with "How are you tomorrow?". It always made us smile as it was said with an Italian accent and a toothless grin. We are so lucky to be close to our families and able to remember gems like this. Thanks for posting a lovely hub, Koffee....

      We were never very close to aunts and uncles for some reason. It must be gratifying when you are.
