My husband's aunt died yesterday. Unfortunately we don't have the funds to go visit, but I have yet to go to any of the funerals of the people passing away the last several years.
Now will come the grieving. This was an aunt that he liked. I met her once and made her uncomfortable, I'm not sure why my non-belief in a deity makes someone who believes so deeply so uncomfortable.
I'll have to take care of my husband this week. I think more snuggling will be in order. I'll have to make sure he's eating right still and that he has someplace to cry.
That whole generation has been going, one by one. I fear his mother will be next, within the next 10 years. That will be really hard and I hope to have the money to visit that funeral.
I'll have to look into some comfort food for him, but healthy versions so we're still getting the nutrients that make us feel better.
I'm sure he'll grieve for a couple of weeks. I hope that he comes to a place of peace in the end. I like that I am here for him now, closer than I was when his dad died a dozen years ago.
