In Worcester, Massachusetts,
I went with Aunt Consuelo
to keep her dentist's appointment
and sat and waited for her
Every member of the family has a unique role to play in the family unit. In every family these roles are different. A role that an aunt or uncle may play is that of helping parents getting along with their children. Much like grandparents, an aunt or uncle is not subjectively involved in what happens in the family. They are often able to see things in a more objective way. Aunts and uncles also may be able to build relationships with their nieces and nephews and give them a place to get away from the family for a while. An uncle or aunt that are committed to their nieces and nephews can play an invaluable part in their lives.

To me you're more than an Uncle,
you're truly a great friend.
Someone I could pour my thoughts out to
knowing you'll cherish them to the end.
This makes me cry also. I have an uncle with the same name too. It feels like the poem was written about him. I have been through a lot of life threatening surgeries and have a medical...
You're growing up so fast
how I want our special moments to last
though I want you to stay
I know one day you'll spread your wings and fly away
Missing a very important person who is being missed but will soon get back home where she can hopefully feel good again. I love and miss you Pookie can't wait till you get back home.
My aunt is to me the greatest person in this world,
one of a kind and one in a million.
She has the biggest heart with the most caring touch,
This is a very nice, touching, and sweet poem. It really defined my aunt the way I have always wanted to define her. I like it. I have read it to her on her birthday and on Women's Day. Thank you
My nephew is my heart.
He opens doors to rooms
I never knew were there,
Breaks through walls
This is exactly how i feel for my 6 year old nephew. My name is Angel and I'm 20 years old, and my nephews father left his life so I took upon myself to be the father figure. I was looking...
When I was hopeless, you were there.
You picked me up; you showed me care.
Without the love you had for me
God only knows where I would be.
A story of an angel on earth, not found very often. Though short, the poem appeals to those who have met such people.
Took me in as his daughter
Wiped the tears from my face
Father took off, so he filled his place
My father was never in my life and my Uncle William, my mother's brother, stepped in and gave me everything that a little girl needs from her Daddy. I had unconditional love, I could talk to...
Kind, loving, generous,
cheeky, playful, adventurous.
Full of laughter, full of fun,
could get a smile from anyone.
I lost my dad 5 days ago. How I wish he could come back to me because I really miss him so much. Father, rest in peace. Until we meet again!
