A roll I find myself in often, and is somewhat suiting to my life desires, is to be the silent supporting staff to what ever events may be occuring around me. At the moment that role is in preparation of my Aunt's funeral. She passed away late last evening. I am not able to fly back home for the funeral. But you can bet I am doing all I can from hundreds of miles away. Phone is on 24/7. I'm doing the photo collage and having it delivered to my family. I have the skills in that area. But more than that, I am attempting to keep a close watch on my mother. She's no spring chicken. This life event has not been easy for her. It came up rather quickly and was over before there was a lot of time to process it. And now she stands alone. The only child left from her parents, with no close cousins or others to lean on, she is the true matriarch of our family. She has good support from my sister, her husband(even less of a spring chicken) and a few good friends. None of that is enough to keep me from being concerned. I spoke to Mom, in detail when she was on the way to be at her sisters side through those last few hours, and we talked about how hard it is to know that sometimes death is the best for the one that is leaving us, while we will always wonder and hope for more quality time. Key word there, quality! I always make my hopes, wishes and prayers for those that are facing difficult health situations to be for their best interest, peace and comfort. My true hope today is that my dear Aunt is now finding peace, something that eluded her most of her days on earth.
