A few days ago, Aunt Mary (my maternal aunt and godmother) lost her year-and-a-half long battle with cancer. Since we were told at the end of April that she’d been started on “end of life” procedures (she was in an assisted living facility) it didn’t come as a shock, but still the news has hit me harder than I expected. There are layers to this grief I can’t even begin to express right now.
Which is actually kind of funny when I think about it – when I was younger, I used to follow her around and regale her with long, drawn out stories about anything that happened to be in my head (which later became known as, “chicken salad sandwich stories“), but I’ve spent the better part of two days trying, and the words won’t come. I’m sure she’d be amused at the irony of me being at a loss for words.
So instead, I’m sharing some of my favorite pictures of her from the recent throwback posts I’ve been doing.
In remembrance of Aunt Mary
Miss you, Aunt Mary. Love you, Mom.
