The last time I visited Aunty Tessie, she proudly showed some pictures of a little chipmunk she held in her hand. Then while we talked he paid us a visit running back and forth on the front porch while Tessie put out a bowl of sunflower seeds for him. Tessie loved nature, spending time with her friends in Whitefield, and most of all her family.
