I go to bed with tears in my eyes, feeling a heavy sorrow. My aunt, my mother’s younger sister, died unexpectedly yesterday or the day before yesterday, her death unknown, likely health related says her husband. I may fly to the funeral as I am unsure if my other family members can make it due to the long flight and distance. I didn’t pack any clothes for Hawaii with me but will have to make due with all my black dresses.
I didn’t keep in touch with her much these last few years, but she replied to a blog post 10 days ago, so maybe she had followed me through my life’s journey.
Hug all your family and friends, let the know how much you love them. Life is precious, make the most of your time together.
