Aunt Electa

Dear Mom,

It’s your sister Electa’s birthday today—celebrating her 88th. Here she is sporting our Bippen Bunch Family Reunion Tshirt (from a few weeks ago) that Jamie and Rachel designed.

If I live as long, I hope I look as good. I’ve never seen Aunt Electa look the way I do today (grubby). Her hair is always done up, make up on, clothes pressed, jewelry matching the outfit—the best she can be.

I never thought about it wrapped up in my own little corner of the world, but your sister celebrated her 48th birthday on the day you were buried. How sad is that? Losing a sibling, I would imagine would be as hard as losing a parent or a child. Some of my relatives have lost all three: parent, sibling and child. And yet they’ve moved onward—what a blessing.

Happy Birthday Aunt Electa! May the day be filled with happier times. And thank you for all that you have done for us.


  1. Aunt Electa certainly looks far younger than her years! What a lovely lady.

  2. Thank you Pat - my Aunt Electa is one of the sweetest!

  3. I love her name! She is eclectic!
