Aunt Sis (Margaret)

My Aunt Sis died yesterday. The cause of her death is unknown a this time. She'll have an autopsy done on her body and then we'll hopefully know what happened. I'm very sad about this. I just talked to her on the phone Monday. She was very excited about Super N's birthday and wanted to know what to get her. I was looking forward to seeing her soon and catching up with her in person.

I talked to her husband last night, my uncle, and he is just torn up inside. This was his girlfriend and then wife for a long, long time. I just can't believe it and I dread the next few days.

I've been so grieved for my Aunt Sis since her son was murdered. It was so horrific and she was never the same after that. Her emotional stability and declining health worried me after the death of her son so I made a point when I got pregnant with W that I would include her in my life more. I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed talking to her when she'd call and sending her pics of the kids. I wish I would've made more of an effort to go and visit more often and to call more often though I am grateful to have talked to her on Monday. She called to make sure I was okay and to tell me she was excited to see us next month and she told me she loved me.

What an awesome person to have known. I'm grateful for the opportunity to have loved her and to have been loved by her. She is already deeply missed by me and others. But I'm glad her physical pain and emotional pain will not be a source of turmoil for her any longer.
