Advice please?

So I'm having a problem with my aunt. She's trying to use me as a replacement for my mother

Allow me to give you a bit of a back story. In 2012 my mother died of a heart attack, my aunt still hasn't moved on from it. Every other day my Aunt, my mother, and my other aunts would talk on the phone. Every other day they'd talk about something. Now that my mother is dead, my aunt has said to my face.

'Why don't you ever talk to me on the phone? We always use to talk on the phone'

Except we didn't. I would talk to her on my birthday, on her birthday, on Christmas, and a few times I went down to ask my mother something. That was it. We did NOT talk all the time. She talked to my mother all the time.

What do I do? She won't listen when I try to tell her it wasn't me she talked to.

Is she elderly? There's not much more you can do, explain that it was your mother she used to talk to but that you'll try to talk to her when you can.
