It’s going to be a difficult day today. This time however, it has nothing to do with Autism, or special needs parenting. Today’s difficulty is the result of being human.
There are many things about being human that are difficult, but few things are more difficult than the loss of a loved one.
Everyone experiences loss, and my family is no exception. This weekend, we will be laying to rest one of my family’s elders. She was/is my great aunt, but she was always just my Aunt Sissy.
I have so many fond memories of the time spent with her. She touched many lives and will be greatly missed. I find comfort in the knowledge that’s she’s been reunited with the love of her life, my Uncle Cy.
This weekend our family will be gathering from all across the country, to mourn this great loss together, but also celebrate the life of a truly amazing woman.
We must say goodbye. Goodbyes are never easy, but in time, we will meet again. We love you Aunt Sissy. You are already missed.
