So very sorry to hear of the passing of my dear "Aunt Chub." She taught me to laugh in the face of disappointments. Her smile, her laugh, her incredible sense of humor and the power it has to help one through the rough spots in life are what I most remember about her . . . oh, and her M&M cake, too. Love You, Dear Aunt! Though you are no longer with us, you will live forever in our hearts! Here's an "Aunt Chub" story for you: She went with us (my wife, Helen; her son, Colin; and me) without a moment's notice, without any hesitation at all, on a trip aboard the Bluebird II from Bar Harbor, ME to Yarmouth, NS. She was particularly interested in what had become of the "Bluebird Number One." We had a blast: we were staying at the camp at Barker's Pond (remember that?!?) and she "just showed up," banging on the door at 4:00 AM, telling us we had overslept and that we had to hurry or we'd miss the boat . . . so we drove like mad to Bar Harbor. Along the way, we ran out of gas as we were pulling into station to fill up; we discovered that the spare in the trunk of my car didn't match with the other tires (6 lug nuts instead of 5); we ate Nova Scotia lox (smoked salmon); she thought the fellow playing the bagpipe when we got off the ship in Yarmouth was very handsome and asked what he wore under his kilt. In Yarmouth, we found a Chinese restaurant that offered "Chinese-Canadian" food (she laughed out loud at that); she had fun, and that's what she wanted to do. She laughed all the way to Canada and back!
