My aunt passed away this past week and it was sad news because she was only 56 years old. She had a hard, undeserving life, losing her husband to brain cancer when he was in his early 40's, leaving her to raise their son alone. She then developed crippling rheumatoid arthritis and a couple years ago she had to be placed in a nursing home because of it. Through all of this she remained bubbly and optimistic. She will be missed. My dad and step-mom came for the funeral all the way from Texas so it was nice to see them, the silver lining of a dark cloud. No stitching was done while they were here so I have some catching up to do.
