More sad news.

Though not unexpected. My mom's sister passed away today; just got the call a little while ago. Of course, the cousins are in shock. Life's been a nightmare for all of them for quite a while now, due to their own serious domestic upheavals, the awfulness that's been our collective family life, and their mom's illness.

On one hand, I can feel the already broken heart being rent further. I want to cry like crazy, but am holding it back. On the other hand, she had been in so much pain for the past as far as I can remember.

(Please think good thoughts for her, her husband, her daughters. They really need them now.)

So sorry to hear of your loss.

Hey Bob, thanks. The funeral/wake thing is going to be odd, and am not sure if I'll even be able to go given how polarized stuff is in the family right now. I'd really like to support my cousins and uncle (he's my godfather, actually, am really fond of him), but don't know if I'm emotionally strong enough to deal with my mother. We've not been speaking since late last Oct, and she's got a habit of acting up at family events.

Darling. Be strong. Your presence will be enough.

Sisu, please think good thoughts. Am going back tomorrow. Am kind of terrified, actually.
