My Two Nieces - Amy and Victoria

Dear Mom,

Your two granddaughters—my two nieces—are grown women now. You never did get to see them, did you?

Warren’s daughter, Amy is a counselor at an elementary school in the Montgomery City, Missouri area.

Suzanne’s daughter, Victoria is an Assistant Professor of Music at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

I find it interesting that they both are in school environments. To me, they’re both as different as night and day. Amy lives in the country and Victoria in the city. Although I could see either of them living the other way, I don’t think they’d be as content. They both have the sweetest disposition. I suppose that is a prerequisite when dealing with children or young adults in a school setting. Anyone having the good fortune to be around these ladies are darn lucky, if you ask me.

I recently came across some old memorabilia from them when they were really little. The letter is from Amy and the drawing is from Victoria. Are they the cutest things ever?

Who could tell from the things they did when they were little how they’d grow up to become who they are—you just never know. They are strong women and you’d be as proud of them as I am. I’m happy that I’m their Aunt Lynn.


  1. What lovely nieces they are, Lynn.

  2. This is wonderful, Lynn! I love my nieces, too.

  3. From your description they are women to be proud wonder you are! They also sound like ladies I'd love to meet for lunch or chat up over a cup of coffee: smart, interesting, and kind. No wonder you love them. Hey, wait a minute. . .they sound a lot like their auntie!

  4. Lynn, I am always so amazed and so happy for you that you've saved so many precious papers. You're such a neat person and I'm happy to be your friend!

  5. Cool! I loved the names of the cats, lol.

    This is such a wonderful tribute, Lynn.

    Missed you!
