My aunt is dying. Terminal cancer. Oh I dont want anyone to say "sorry" or anything.....but my question IS...late last night I thought about writing her a letter about all of the special things I remember about her. The weeks I stayed as a child during summer, etc. THen I hought that was stupid. And went to bed. But upon waking up I thought...my father died pretty young , terminal cancer. He KNEW he was going to die, but he fought till the end and everyone stayed far away from him.. Do you think this would be a kind thing , this type of letter, to bring back memories, or would you think it was rather well....morbid?
What I am getting at, really...is that flowers, a card to the family, etc....AFTER her death, well thats just for the living. Would it be in appropriate to write her such a letter while she is still alive?
