|Tante Lillemor and me at the Henriksens in Oslo|
Today I thought I'd post a few pictures of me and my Aunt Inger-Mari Strand Henriksen, also affectionately known as Lillemor. The above photo was taken at my Aunt's inlaws' home in Oslo, Norway, in the 1990s. (Her husband's brother's place.) She was already a widow then, and treasured her relationship with her husband's family.
Everyone would remark on how much we looked alike. I think I look more like her than I did my own mother, her sister! We always had a special bond.

We sometimes referred to Tante Lillemor as "Lolo". When I took her to the Rocky Cola Cafe for ice cream, she misread the writing on the front of the building and declared, "Look! Isn't it funny! It's called the Lolo Cafe?"
My dear Tante Aase flew with her from Salt Lake City on that visit. Here they are at Disneyland with Mickey. That was a lovely day. Tante Aase is in her mid-90s now and starting to slow down a little.
