This is no fair

My weird aunt died suddenly last Tuesday. She was the person who taught me music and Shakespeare and baking fabulous cookies, who introduced me to Gilbert and Sullivan and science fiction and Magic: The Gathering and Sandra Boynton and personality analysis. We used to debate and analyze for hours, and more recently we instead stayed up far too late playing strange card games.

I'm glad she's out of pain, but I'm going to miss her terribly.

She sounds like a treasure (a quirky and rare one) and I'm sorry you had to say goodbye.

I'm sorry too. That's rough to lose such a cool-sounding person. Good tribute to her.

She was amazing. I am glad you moved back and she got to spend time with you. I know she was exceedingly fond of you.

Please thank your sister for calling me. Your family is in my prayers.

I've said prayers for you and your grandparents over the last few days. It is hard enough to lose a family member; losing a child is probably the most difficult thing a person can go through. Being proceeded in death by all your children....
