I lost my Aunt 2 months ago, only 56 years old. Died fast from an anarisam. She also was my neighbor. She left behind 3 young adult kids and my Uncle. My Uncle was having a very hard time getting over her death. Well today, we noticed a lot of cars over at my Uncles house, to find out shortly after he past away today. Those poor kids losing both parents within 2 months of eash other. This just breaks my heart for those kids, to have to go through the holidays with no parents. I have asked them all to come over for Christmas and I will try to be there foster mom for the day. I have been crying all day for them. This really breaks my heart...

    I will have you in my thoughts and i hope the new year isnt as tough as this year

  • You asked, why? There is no reason that will make any sense. The living have to go on living-I lost my father when he was still young, too. So I know that is what we must do.

    Their children will be happy to be with family and with people who lived so close to their parents. Tell them others are thinking of them and praying for their parents.

    If you are hurting-please take care of yourself, too. I wish the best for you and your neices and nephews and family.
  • As turtle said, no one knows why... but I must admit, its definitely not the first time I've heard of spouses passing away within a few months of each other.

    Wonderful that you are opening your heart and home to their kids, holidays are always tough but they will be with family - that is a gift.
  • I'm sorry for your loss. The children will feel your Aunt and Uncles love and tradtional christmas through you. I know it's hard at this time of year but you're there for them. Take care. Charry

  • JustMe, that's a lot on your shoulders in such a short time...personally, I don't think we're capable of understanding why and when things happen. I believe, for better or worse, it's all part of how life is laid out. Having this happen any time of the year is hard, but it's especially hard during the holidays where all that happening will be associated with this time of year...take care and I'll include y'all in my prayers. You're a good hearted person to take on what you do
  • I'm so sorry for your loss,and theirs.My prayers are with you today.
  • Thanks everyone, words really do help. I am over the shock, now just have to learn to get through this. My Uncle was the one I would run to when I needed to talk. He would always call and ask how I was doing. He made me feel someone cared. I will miss our talks, his dumb jokes, his silly ways. And his kind heart.
    Justme
  • I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers are with you and your family especially the children. I hope you keep in touch with the children and stay close. You sound very caring. I am sorry for everything you are going through and so close to the holidays too.

    I hope you have a Merry Christmas and even better New year!
