I don't think you should ever feel your feelings count for less because of some family hierarchy. You were close that's what matters. Nice that you resemble her. I am sure you have pictures of her and stories about her you can tell DS when he's old enough. And if you live near where she's buried you can leave a little token any time of year not just anniversaries.

Aunties are wonderful and I'm not surprised you miss her. Everyone has their own special relationship within families and all are just as valid.

Be kind to yourself and remember all the wonderful things about her. Do talk about her here if it helps.
