I was planning on writing up another update, but I just had a rough morning. Late last night, my aunt lost her fight with cancer.
She was an extraordinary woman, who remained strong through a lifetime of illness (arthritis). Mom remembers how she'd be in the hospital and still making arrangements so her family would be taken care of. She always put others first. She was a teacher and she touched the lives of many people.
What I'll miss the most is her birthday cards. Every year, without fail, she would send a card depicting flowers. Inside would be beautifully-worded messages and well-wishes. Reading them makes me feel loved and cherished.
She will be missed and I need a few days to get my composure (and good spirits) back. Thanks for understanding.
