Impending Death and My Aching Heart

Today has had its ups and downs, and as I write this I should be sleeping. Classes started again today, but I have other things on my mind right now.  My Great Aunt Meme is not expected to live for more than a few more hours, and that makes everything else in my life seem trivial.

I know that we will all die at some point, but it’s difficult to know that soon she won’t be here any more. I love her with all of my heart, and I have never doubted her love for me.

I am thankful for the time that I have gotten to spend with her recently. Dad and I visited her at Thanksgiving, and I saw her a few months earlier when Clint (aka The Suit) and I went to Houston. He was here with me tonight, and he just listened as I told him about her status and my plans to be there.

It is incredibly hard to accept that I will not see her again, and I don’t know what else to say tonight. I know that she won’t suffer when she’s gone, but my heart still feels broken.

She is the most kind-hearted, pure, loving and non-judgmental person one could ever hope to know, and she is part of so many of my favorite childhood memories.

She has loved me since the day I was born, and I have loved her my whole life too.

God bless her, and all of the people who have loved her and been loved by her.
