I Lost An Aunt

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 31 People

    And Then There Was 2.

    Some people here may hear me talk about an aunt of mine every once in a while, but usually those of which I speak are really not my aunts, they are older cousins, or great aunts. As I only have two Aunts that are still living. One is my dad's brother's wife. Whom I...

    A Few Years Ago..

    I actually had not seen her in several years because there was a falling out between her and my mother. Sadly, the only reason why we started talking to that side of the family was because of my Aunt's death.

    More Than One...

    I lost one aunt to death, I think she died of loneliness after my cousin was murdered... My other aunt just stopped talking to me because she holds grudges and cannot forget our fighting past.

    I have lost both of my parents to cancer. It is a terrible disease that hopefully we can end. Too much pain has been caused because of it. Too many people lost.
