Could you reference the narration?
A person came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said, “I have committed a sin, how can I repent?’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Is your mother alive?’ He replied, ‘She has passed on.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Is your khalah (maternal aunt) alive?’ When he replied in the affirmative, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘ Go and be kind to her.’
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1904)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
