Not a shock to us as she had cancer but still a sad day
I guess it's that time in life that funerals become more common, my first 32 years I attended only four funerals, tomorrow will make 5 in six years

I am very sorry for the loss of your aunt, Once.

I lost three family members within six months of each other in 2012, so I understand what you mean about the funerals becoming more common.

Just know that we here on the Grief and Mourning Forum are thinking of you. I don't post much, but I do read this forum everyday and am thinking of all who are going through rough times. May we all have peace soon.

So sorry about your Aunt. I lost one of mine last summer after a brief, totally (she had gone to the doctor for something unrelated) cancer battle.

I was close to my aunt but I also know what you mean about "that time in life" . I hadn't attended a funeral in years, the older (my granparents and their "generation" of my family had been gone for 10 years or so). I lost another aunt 2 years ago. It's been tough - not just because I miss my aunts so much but I've had to face the face that my parents are part of their generation....

I am sorry for your loss, as well.

It seems like anymore, they are coming faster and closer together, which, I guess shows how old I have become.... I had many aunts as a younster growing up and I miss several of them, very much. My gp's were long dead when I came along, so the older aunts and uncles kind of made up for the empty spot....

Cherish your memories.

I am sorry for your loss. An aunt is like an extra mother figure.

My aunt has cancer and is on the verge of dying. When is a good time to grieve?
