I recently lost my beloved Aunt Coline. This is dedicated to her memory and to all her loving family.

Coline was my mother’s little sister. There were initially four Innes girls: Barbara, Joanne, Adele and Coline, and they were a force of nature.

They had powerful spirits and each had a great sense of humor and zest for life.  I had the happiness of knowing all of them throughout my life.

My mother is the last remaining sister.
