Sometime in the night, I lost my favorite aunt. She had such an impact on me, even though we had grown apart for a few years. Thankfully we were able to start communicating again before she passed. I didn't realise how much of an impact she had on me until now. WOW. I think I'm going to cry again. I have lost a father, a grandfather, a very close friend and now an aunt over the past several years. How many more? I'm finding that it is difficult each and every time I lose someone. It hasn't gotten easier as time has gone by either. Does it ever? I wonder. Worse yet, I can't even get to her funeral. :( I've cried my eyes out for hours now. The tears just don't seem like they are ever going to dry up.
