Time Passes ...
My aunt, after 7 years of fighting and living with cancer, died this week. I have written a lot of posts about her journey and mine. But truly there are very few words that seem appropriate when someone dies, so this is going to be brief. Watching and sharing her journey has been life changing and eye opening. I have learnt more about myself, the process of aging, getting sick, and of family than I would have thought possible.
So go gently Aunty Lib and thank you for the years of love and for openly sharing this journey with us all. I hope you felt us all surrounding you with love in these last years, months and days. Give mum a kiss from me xx

(Oh and by the way, I know that she would have hated this photo, but I love it and due to my substantial lack of digital photos of her, this is the one I'm going with :)
