                                     Aunt Gennie and Aunt Lula

And Aunt Gennie. She was a strong-willed person, and Aunt Lula was just the opposite.
Aunt Gennie would boss Aunt Lula, but she thought the world of her. Aunt Lula never
did marry. She died of cancer.

Aunt Gennie was like Grandma Matilda, and Aunt Lula was just like Grandpa, quiet and
reserved.
