I love this picture. My two aunts (R.I.P.) loved my sister and I dearly. The youngest of my mother's siblings was in fact the most protective of everyone in the family. My cousin Nat, who lost his mother (my aunt) when he was younger than in the picture, is shown with his father, Mr. Burkes (R.I.P.). He never turned his back on Nat, he was with him every step of the way. This picture was taken in 1979 at my grandmother's house. The love at that time is priceless. -Natasha Douglas
