Now it is happening again

Saturday, January 07, 2012

Here we go again.. My mother's sister, the one on the right, has leukemia and has been put in hospice. I just do not look forward to heading back to Chicago for another funeral. She is so sweet and I got to spend some time with her (a couple days) when I went back for my Mom's funeral. the woman on the left in the lounge chair.
Both their brothers are gone and Auntie is 91 years old this March... Just feeling sad.
I hope I am able to get back for the funeral.
I feel so sorry for my cousin and her family. They have taken care of her all these years. They are a blessing to her. Here I am so far away again.
What is more important, going to see her one last time. Or being there for my cousins after? Must pray about it. Thank you for the support. But really only want the advice I get from that "still small voice" . THank you for listening.

    You will always regret not seeing her one last time. You can provide support for your cousins by phone, letters, & email, but YOU will need closure also. If there is any way you can go see her, do it. I am still regretting not going to see a cousin when I had the chance, the day before he died. It's been 20 years, and it still weighs on me, the sense of loss in not being able to say goodbye.
