Feeling a little sad today. My aunt’s long time beau (of 25 years) died Sunday evening. He had been sick for a long time and his death was expected, but I feel bad for my aunt. I think I met him once a long time ago, so I didn’t really know him. They live in another state and don’t get to come here to visit very often. My aunt of course is devastated. She took care of him for a long time, and I’m not sure how she’ll do now that she is without him. They didn’t live together until just recently, but he was such a huge part of her life, I don’t know how she’ll handle this.Then today I just learned that my boss’ stepdaughter died last night. She was in her early 30′s, no kids, but married to her high school sweetheart. She had a heart transplant several years ago because of a defect in her own heart and she was doing really well. All her checkups were good and she was feeling fine. Then last night, her husband woke up to hear her gasping for breath, and then she stopped breathing and he couldn’t wake her up. Just like that, she is gone.
It’s strange, because I didn’t really know these people who have passed, but I am still sad. One suffered for so long, and the other was gone in one breath.
And then I heard on the radio that a new baby was born today, and it makes me realize, it just keeps going. Life ends for one and begins for another without missing a beat.
I’ll post tomorrow with something a little more sun-shiny, but today the cloud that is over me needs attention. And I just can’t think of anything else to write about today.
