blood is thicker than water

Rest in peace to my aunt Maroulla [Little Mary], who died tonight in a Catholic old people's home. She was one of the first women to dare to ride her own Vespa in Cyprus ~ unprecedented on a Mediterranean island in the 1950s. She always wore her hair short and mannish, was fiercely outspoken, had a mathematical mind, and spent most of her life looking after her mother, Ioanna [Joanna] ~ my grandmother's sister. God rest their souls, and grant comfort to those who loved her and will miss her. Especially her nephew Andreas, friends Monica, Irma, and Panayiotis, and her cousin Liana.
