A tribute to my great-aunt, Babe

Today I learnt that my great-aunt Babe had passed away. Hanging out with Babe was always a highlight of my visit to see my dad’s side of the family in Nebraska. She had a wit, independence and cheekiness about her that I always loved and admired. She also had killer fashion sense – she was always impeccably dressed. One of the last times I saw her I showed her a lovely new cape I had bought from a vintage store and she was very impressed. It was the ultimate compliment!

I may not have been able to see her very often, but I had a special connection with her and she will be dearly missed.

No one can pull off orange like Babe can.
