As far as I knew she was the most amazing and wonderful person in the world. Her name was Ada. She was my biological fatherís sister and only about ten years older than me but to me she might as well have been a movie star or an angel. She would come from time to time, pick me up and we would go do something really fun and only for me. She wasnít any of my other brothers and sisters aunts so they couldnít come. It was one of the few things in life that made me feel special. When you live in a home with as many kids as I did its hard to feel special but she always managed to find something different we could do that showed me I was special, at least to her. I never knew my father growing up and she was my only link to that part of my family. She had soft brown hair with big brown eyes and a gentle voice that made me forget the life I had just left with all of its misery. I remember once, before she could drive, she walked over to my house pulling a red Radio Flyer wagon which she promptly put me in and pulled me down the street to get ice cream and cookies. I am not sure why she stopped coming around very often but I assume it was because she became a teenager with all of its busyness or maybe it was because we moved so much that she lost track of where we lived. Eventually she stopped coming at all. I was almost sixteen before I heard from her again. She had gotten married and they wanted me to come for Christmas at their house. Her husband was really great and I felt right at home. I wasnít surprised that he was so great. What else would have been good enough for my Aunt Ada but my wonderful Uncle Ken? I hardly ever see or talk to her now but I am forever grateful for her loving kindness to an awkward young girl with a rough home life who desperately needed to know everything would be okay.

What a lovely tribute. I hope you share this with her.

You might want to break this up into shorter paragraphs, to make it easier to read.

Sounds like Aunt Ada was a wonderful, wonderful woman.
