My brother and my aunt

Here is my "little" brother Ralph, who lives in Austin TX, visiting my aunt Italina, aged 93, in Bologna, Italy, a few weeks ago.
I call her Zia Lelle. She lives on her own, does all her own cooking, banking, shopping, cleaning, etc.

Another picture of my aunt. She lived with her older sister most of the last 10 years. But about 3 years ago, the sister, Zia Libia, had to go in a nursing home. The home was about 150 yards away. Almost every day Zia Lelle would walk there to visit her sister. Zia Libia passed away about 2 years ago.
