It doesn't seem so long ago (it wasn't either — it was June when my aunt died and yes this is the same side of my family) that I was writing a post similar to this. On Saturday night, my uncle passed away. I think he was 82, so he lived a full life. The weekend prior he had a heart attack and last week he had a stroke. The wake is tomorrow night and the funeral Wednesday. Since this is 4 hours from my home (aff), there is no way for me to attend this. I am also leaving at the end of the week for a conference and I couldn't leave my kids with a sitter for almost a week. I feel bad all around. Though when things like this happen, it does put everything in perspective. It makes me look at my family and appreciate what I have. I have two wonderful kids, a wonderful husband, and we all have our health. Anyway, if you could keep my family in your thoughts and prayers it is appreciated. My mom seems to be holding up well, but I can never tell.
