Less than a week ago I received a phone call from one of my nieces telling me her sister was in a bad motorcycle accident and that she will be needing sugary to repair one of her legs but they think every thing is going to be alright. I received another phone call saying that she had a stroke while they were doing an MRI and that she passed.
I have not seen some of these kids since her mother, my sister had passed away 2008, and some I have never seen. We decided that we were going to go to the funeral. My own personal feeling is that I do not even know these kids and that is no ones fault but my own. I have been so caught up in my own life with my kids that I guess that I left no room for others that lived so far away and some that even live close by. I am the only relative they have left on their mothers or grand mothers side,
Even though they were hurting over the loss of their mother, aunt, and sister every one of them showed me love and how they appreciated my coming. I would like each and every one of them know that I do love them also and I am sorry for their loss. She was a very neat lady and I can tell that she taught all of her kids to have love and respect for each other.
