Condolences

Condolence From: Victoria Potter
Condolence: The legendary Auntie Elaine Potter and the original hippie chick.. my muse my mentor and my favorite gal. This fabulous woman played a significant roll in who I am ! As a child in the sixties I spent many a weekend at their home ..she's extremely responsible for much of who I am.. my passion for leopard print ..cheap plastic bangles and hats ..(she bought me my first flopsy hat-peace-love-groovy) oh the stories.. her house was one of my favorite places ..beautiful antiques all around, she refinished old furniture and brought it to life..Mark's attic bedroom the dream of every teen....and the creme de le creme.. her closet filled with treasure she was quite the fashionista..she always let me go through and try on her scarves and hats dresses shoes..boots ( yes it's true she got me nancy sinatra these boots are made for walkin go go boots circa 74)and purses and bangles which were piled big baskets all around ..I felt pretty as I danced around the room with her listening to Sonny and Cher and The beat goes on.......many of these stories.. which have been told repetitively over the years...like ...the day we were shopping at the signal hills mall.. and we stopped to get candy out of one of those machines..you know old school. where you put in a quarter and you turn the handle and a handful of M&Ms come out .. turns out the handle was broken.. she promptly emptied her purse into one of the shopping bags.. and we emptied the candy machine into her purse.. cuz we're clever like that ( Liz of course)off we went giggling as we took our spoils home with us.. to add to our favorite popcorn and Pepsi cola(in glass bottles) as we sat up late in her beautiful antique bed with a headboard that was almost to the ceiling stacked with pillows and brocaded blankets I loved her home it was groovy..like her...a home should be like its queen and king.. And there we sat.watching old movies till the wee hours of the morning... When Uncle Hugh would arrive..my father's brother and another one of my favorite people.. ( I have his army jacket and was just saying yesterday I'll never stop wearing it) after the United States army.. he was one of the first grocers in Minnesota to offer 24-hour grocery in Hastings ..and he would arrive approximately 3 or 4 a.m. and make us hot tamales... And tell us wild stories of people coming in stoned at 2 in the morning and trying to steal steaks and gumdrops LOL and he would take his pistol out and chase them out of the store shooting in the air running down the street I still love that vision... Of course, he is an American veteran. Sergeant Potter .. which reminds me of another story ..her and I are getting ready to go on one of our shopping trips looking for her favorite Liz Claiborne..me a mood ring... I loved to watch her put her makeup on and get dressed for a day on the town.. she showed me how to put on lipstick.. I still love lipstick..and I still wear this shade ..(pic) we were ready to roll, lookin sharp..and on the kitchen counter was a note from Uncle Hugh... it said we are going to so-and-so's house please make a tuna salad... She promptly wrote back..listen, Sergeant Potter, I am not one of your soldiers make your own dam tuna salad !! I told you she was badass! And maybe where I got a little of my sass... And off we went..there's another legendary story that all of my daughters and granddaughters have heard.. involving a slinky sxy maxi dress in the 70s. when going to Cheryl Dinger and David Dinger s wedding ...you'll have to ask me about that one personally ;). I could go on and on of course and I will tell her stories forever.. isn't that all we really want each of us.. that we are remembered when we're gone and somebody will be able to tell our stories.. that we know we were loved..known.. and made a difference and that our family and friends will miss us.. indeed Auntie E . I miss you... I love you and will see you when I get there.. until then know that your Romeo is awaiting his Juliet. To the Moon! Victoria Potter
