A friend’s mom passed away suddenly this past Sunday. Auntie, as my better half and I affectionately call her, loved to ballroom dance and was great at dancing until her leg was hurt a few years ago. Auntie was someone that loved a good party. In fact, she was organizing another party a few days before she passed away. Knowing Auntie would have wanted it, the family made the decision to have the upcoming party go on as previously planned on Chinese New Year. It saddens me to think that a previously planned joyful occasion of a Chinese New Year dance party that is going to be the first birthday party for the grandson, is not going to have the sadness of a missing hostess.
In memory of Auntie, here is a music video “Love is in the Air” with a few dance sequences from the film Strictly Ballroom.
