Aunt Jane was my aunt by marriage — the wife of my dad’s younger brother. Aunt Jane and I had a special connection and I loved how she affectionately called me “niece.” As I traveled the world posting pictures from South America, Asia, and Europe, she would comment on my Facebook pictures with “Have fun, niece.” “Miss you, niece.” “Beautiful, niece.”
