I was in Maine saying goodbye to my paternal grandmother when my mom got a phone call from her sister.. I remember it as if it was yesterday.. We were in Walmart shopping and getting a break from the hospital when my moms phone rang.  Since we were in walmart there wasn't a good signal so my mom wasn't sure ifshe heard her sisiter correctly.. 

I told my mom that Dad and I would check out and that she should go outside and call her sister.. When we got go the car my mom was sobbing and just saying "i can't believe this." finally my mom told us that my cousin just 21 had taken his own life..  My aunt (my moms sister) had to break in the bedroom door in order to get to him and that he was dead before she got into the room.  He had overdosed on purpose.   It breaks my heart and 3 days later my Dads mom passed away.  It was horrible.  I'm looking at his picture and remembering him today..

I'm also thinking about my Grandmother and how amazing she was.

Loseing a family member is so hard especially two so close together.

My MIL  passed away on December 18 of  2007 while my dh's family were prepareing to deal with the 1 yr anniversay of his moms death my SIL passed away. She passed December 16 of 2008. It brought back so many memories of what they had gone through the year before.
