These were the words I heard at today’s funeral of my Aunt. These words are very powerful indeed. A sad day for my family, but time does heal those who greive.
I have fond memories of visiting my Aunt on Christmas Eve day and taking the chocolate candy ornaments she had hung on her christmas tree. Looking back, shealways had these every year waiting for us when we came to visit. We will miss you Aunt Juliette!
Well I’m back to work, today looking for a sense of normalcy to return after a long past few days. Death is always so difficult for me especially close to the holidays. It was almost two years ago (Dec. 9th, 2004) that Uncle Rene took his own life by suicide. My Aunt Tootsie still suffers continuously…although she has made tremendous strides in her life changes without him.
Perhaps if I just travelled to Italy this year I could forget it was the holidays! Ciao Florence! Arrive derci USA.
