I received news this morning that my aunt passed away after a year-long battle with cancer. After being declared cancer free at the end of last year, it returned this year more aggressively than ever. I thought she had beaten it. I thought everything would be ok. I thought how lucky we all were. And then it went from bad to good to great to bad to even worse — everything happened so quickly I can’t even really process it. I’m in a state of disbelief… shock… a million feelings at once. How? Why? All the questions that never seem to have answers, or at least never the ‘right’ ones.
My aunt– always with a smile, a silly face, an infectious laugh, a kind and warm and open heart — you were so loved and will be so very missed.
