My Aunt Dolly passed this last weekend. She was an amazing woman that I didn’t see much in the last 10 years or so, if not longer. A few weddings, sure, which were always a great time.
She lived in Oregon, I live in San Diego. Always feeling like I would have the chance to visit her, but never made an effort to. When she was diagnosed with lung cancer, the initial scare was shocking, yet there always the feeling that she could beat it. She was like that. Strong willed. With a lot of positive results, things looked good for awhile, until tests came back saying that the cancer had spread to her pancreas and lymph nodes. I didn’t get to see her before she passed. The funeral was today. I didn’t go. Pretty shitty feeling, but I know for some reason she understands. Without getting all spiritual or metaphysical, I just know she is sending her love my way. Love you Aunt Dolly.. may you rest in peace.
