Unexpected passing of a beloved Aunt

Rest in PeaceAunty Floretta.

As if I didn't feel guilty enough, this morning before work I called my mom regaarding out Turkey Day plans, and found out they had been trying unsuccessfully to reach me all week. One of my favorite aunts (they are all my favorites), my mom's baby sister (she was the youngest of the family) passed away very unexpectedly. No one even knew she was sick or not feeling good. Apparently they think she had a blood clot, from when she broke her foot awhile back. (According to my mom), and along with the fact that she was developing Osteoperosis is what did it. My mom couldn't give me the whole story as neither of us had alot of time.

The funeral was on my mom's birthday of all things.. Now I really feel like a lousy daughter. All my mom does for me, I can't even be bothered to call on her birthday or be available when I am needed for family situations. Talk about your major guilt overdose.

I have many fond memories of my aunt, she was always such a lively and fun person, the kind of person you wanted to be around. I remember a family gathering at my Aunt Maggies house, when we were all leaving for Church services (evening services) and deciding who was driving what and riding with who. I remember my Aunt just piping up, "I'll ride with Holly I want to talk to her I haven't talked to her in a long time". She was an outgoing fun person, the kind of person who you couldn't help but like.

I wish I could have been at the funeral, at least I could have said good-bye..

Thankful For: hard to think of anything right now, I guess it would be that she (hopefully) died peacefully with no pain

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
