Small of frame, cute as a button, and brave as a miniature tin soldier.
In comparing characteristics between you and your sisters, throughout the years
and your experiences, you were or became the bolder.
Facing bully trashed mouthed giants shocked all of us.
For, there was no violence.
Including the bully himself was shocked into silence.
Stature like a tater tot and confidence piled high like a pancake stacker.
I loved you great auntie, my adorable and gutsy firecracker.
