RIP Aunt Nancy 😔

Mother called me by mistake – let that sink in – and left a brief voicemail saying that her younger sister, my aunt, had passed on.

Mother
Hi. This is mom. I thought I’d get [your father, my ex-husband]. Just wanted to let you know that [your aunt, my sister] Nancy died this morning. Okay. Bye.

I’ll always remember my aunt being an excitable, little woman. She resembled Mother but with black hair instead of blond and smaller. Actress, Juliette Lewis, and singer, Cindi Lauper, remind me of her.

She married several times — at least twice. I remember two of her husbands: Uncle Eli and Uncle Mark. Both good people as far I knew them. Very patient. No children.

If there is a god and a heaven as my aunt believed then I hope she is made whole and finds peace and rest from suffering there.
