Today being the 50th Anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's passing, many people have some out and expressed their love, adoration, and admiration of Hollywood's blond bombshell. I came upon this amazing article that expressed the way I would like to remember Norma Jean.
An interview with MM's niece from her sister (half but who cares if its half-a sibling is a sibling, right?) just warmed my heart as she shared her precious and sweet memories of her beloved aunt. The things she said about MM are the things I for many years have felt about her. That she would have made an amazing mother, that she was smart as heck, and that she was in simplest terms, a sweet and kind person. At the end of the day she was a girl with dreams like the rest of us.
I hope you enjoy the article as much as I did~My Aunt, Marilyn Monroe
