Visiting Aunt Joyce
I thought today was going to be hard because I was going to visit my Aunt and give her support in her time of mourning. As I've said before in this blog, I have such empathy for her that I sometimes have flash-backs to the first few days after Rob's death.
It wasn't like that though. Of course my Aunt Joyce was very sad but she was also very happy to see me and kept saying so. We chatted and had dinner together. We talked about good times and bad, and of people we loved and missed. She talked about the lives of my cousins and I told her how Bruce and the kids are doing.
Aunt Joyce, besides missing Uncle Norm, really misses my Mom. They had always been very close but during the last 14 years they had been practically inseperable.
As I listened to her talk and watched her move about, I could see flashes of my Mom. It made me gasp, smile and feel a twinge of sadness. Maybe in some cosmic way they still are inseperable.
