Subject: Sad news from my family - again...

Written By: FaultyDog on 12/31/05 at 7:13 am

I just received word that my aunt (youngest sister of my mother) has died. :o :\'( :(

I knew she was in hospital (I even visited her there) because of an inflammation of the pericardium. She was seriously ill and short of breath, but it wasn't life threatening. A day or two ago, things deteriorated and she had to be taken to another hospital where she was put on the IC. And now today, she has died... I can't believe it. She was my favourite aunt. This is a very sad day. :\'(

FYI: My aunt never got married and has had no children.

I had an uncle who died seven years ago this May of liver disease; he was single his whole life too. In fact, both of my living uncles are still single and kidless..

More sad news from my family... :\'(

Today, an older sister of my mother has died, well in her 80s. It was my mother's last living sibling.
My aunt's health had been feeble for quite a while, so her death comes as no real surprise - yet, it is only four weeks ago since the death of my other aunt. We were/are still in the process of dealing with her inheritance (clearing her house etc.).

Sometimes life ain't fair at all...

You may have mentioned this before, but was he younger or older than you? Not that it matters much - losing a sibling is always a painful experience.

The similarities are striking. I'm not gonna say that I know how you feel or felt, 'cause I don't know you that well, and I don't know how close you were/are as a family. Nevertheless I hope you and your father have recovered somewhat of the double loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Thanks for your concern, Jeffrey. It's much appreciated.
Both my father and mother are still alive, as I've probably mentioned somewhere else before. I'm thinking of maybe posting a picture of the two of them, although I'm a bit hesitant. It feels like I'm violating their privacy. :-\\
