I haven't lost a close family member since I lost my great-aunt on my mother's side back in... 2005? It was on an Easter, too. A death we're trying to prepare for is my aunt Kathy's; she has pancreatic cancer, has had it for years now without knowing it, and the doctor gave her a pretty grim prognosis. I didn't even know her name before last year; she wasn't really invited to any of the family reunions, because she and my grandpa didn't get along anymore.
When she found out about it, I don't think she was very surprised; their mother had died of the same exact thing a looong time ago. She's on a lot of different pain medication now, and she's able to walk without her walker sometimes (a lot of her pain's in her back now), and she's now in a nursing home. She's a really sweet lady; I don't know how her siblings are gonna take it. I'm not sure how I'll take it; I barely know her.
I KNOW THE PIECES FIT, CAUSE I WATCHED THEM FALL AWAY, MILDEWED AND SMOLDERING.
FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERING, PURE INTENTION JUXTAPOSED WILL SET TWO LOVERS' SOULS IN MOTION.
DISINTEGRATING AS IT GOES, TESTING OUR COMMNICATION.
THE LIGHT THAT FUELED OUR FIRE THEN HAS BURNED A HOLE BETWEEN US SO WE CANNOT SEE TO REACH AN END...
