My mom's sister Joanne Strong passed away last week. I got to know Aunt Jo when I was a little kid and we lived in Mississippi for three years. We moved in with her and Uncle Albert for a few months while we were trying to buy a house. I have some good memories of the time we spent with her. She was a good sister and aunt to many. I flew down to New Orleans on Thursday and returned Sunday. It was nice getting to see aunts and uncles and cousins that I haven't seen for years. Thank you to my Hebert cousins for being great hosts to us. My mom, sisters Marie and Beth, and brother Mike were there. I was so excited to see my mom, since she's been in London for a year. The night before I left the girls went and saw the Twilight movie. I really enjoyed it. After the funeral, we all went back to Stefanie's house and had a nice family gathering. It was lots of fun, with most enjoying Singstar! It's sad that it takes a funeral to get people together. We will definitely need to have a Glass family reunion in the near future.
