I have many fond memories of summers spent at Aunt Mabel’s house. Swimming in the Eno River, helping de-string the snap beans and shucking corn.

RIP Aunt Mabel.

Mable & I were friends for over 5 years. We went grocery shopping, luncheons, church, sunday school classes together. We talked on the phone almost every day or at least every other day. I considered Mable my dearest & closest friend. She helped me in my Christian walk, when we visited we shared so many things. She thanked GOD every day for her blessings which included her wonderful family & friends. She touched so many lives with her love for GOD & for others. I thank GOD every day for bringing Mable into my life. I will miss her.

Aunt Mable always demonstrated a passionate love for children. The last time I visited her in Charlotte, in my rearview mirror as I drove away, I saw Aunt Mable pick up a small child who lived next door. I was amazed she still had that much strengh but then realized she did that often enough to maintain that ability.

My sympathy to all the children and
grandchildren in the loss of Mable.
The thing I remember most about her
was the jewelry she used to make.
I still have some that she gave me,
many, many years ago.

Dear Paula, Dawn and family,
We were all shocked that Mable passed. Even now I think I will wake from a dream and learn it was not true. We were not ready for this and I am sure you weren’t either.

Every time I saw her she said, “I am so blessed. My family loves me and I am so blessed.” I think she had a lot of families who loved her. Our VIP support group loved her too. She said she found a home when she found us. She was our mother and our heart. Some even called her, “Mom”.

I’ve been asking myself lately what was it about her that made us all love her so much. I think it is because we all knew that she loved us personally. She told us often how grateful she was for us and she told us she loved us often. She called each of us on the phone every month. She gave us her time.

Since her passing I have been humming the little song, “Count your blessings, count them one by one. Count your many blessings, see what God has done.” Do you remember that song? It is in my heart and I am sure Mable put it there.

Her little angel doll sits in the window sill behind me all day long. Her name is Mable. My exercise equipment is at my door in the plastic basket she gave me with tomatoes. I am reminded to take care of myself and to love myself.

I have a tendency to be very introverted and often depressed. As I sing her little song I feel such joy. I think because she was so grateful, she was able to give love to others. She was blessed but it was because she was always a blessing to others.

I ask myself how I can be more like her. I can give thanks more for my blessings. I can give my time to others. I can share my talents as she did. She never wanted any recognition at all. In fact she gave money for another in our group to go on a trip but make me promise not to ever tell.

She made friends all over the place. She was such a joy to us and I want you to know how much we all loved her.

I have asked everyone in our group and the staff here who worked with her to write about her and what she meant to them. Some comments have not come back yet but when I get them all I will write them up and send them to you.

Please leave me an address where they can be mailed.
We are all so blessed to have known her and to be loved by her.
Jane Genten
