When last I posted an elderly 1st cousin once removed had died on Saturday 22 Jan 2011. Well since then 2 more have died. I didn’t know one of them very well but the last one that died I had just seen at the first cousin’s funeral. The one that died last had come home after having lunch with his sister and sister-in-law. This was after they all had attended the funeral of the first cousin. With me so far?
Now to add to the count. My mother called me this morning to tell me her sister-in-law, my aunt, had passed away this morning. My aunt had been sick for a while and this passing wasn’t a out of left field shocker but still.
You have got to be kidding me! So in 6 days I have had 4 people that I am related to die….is that some kind of record or something?
The three 1st cousins once removed were on my dad’s side and the aunt was on my mom’s side.
SOOOOO, trying to find the silver lining to all of this death and funeral home visits……..don’t put off until tomorrow things you should do today! Everybody have at least a yearly checkup and talk to those family members you’ve been meaning to interview while you still can.
I’m off to check my closet to make sure all of my funeral home attire is clean and presentable.
