This thread is meant to offer an outlet and a chance to remember for everyone. I don't mean to wallow in the bummers of life, but sometimes there is just no way around it.
We've all dealt with the loss of a loved one. Many of us have endured and experienced loss and some that were extremely close. I just lost my Aunt Karen today, and it hurts more than I anticipated. She's been sick with pancreatic cancer for 3 months, so this is no surprise. I'm just struggling with the idea of never being able to see her again. She was 19 when my mother was born. Thus, in all sense and purpose she was like my grandma. I'm going to miss her terribly. My mom has been asked to write the eulogy and she has asked me to help and possibly read it at the funeral if it all proves too much for her. I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas as to how to bring together one's life and love in to one neat little speech. It kind of seems impossible.

One of the things that makes this even more difficult is how sad it is making my Uncle Don. Only a few lucky people are able to have and share true love and their marriage undoubtedly was one of those treasures. I worry that losing her is gonna kill him.
