Exclamation I lost my Grandpa and Great Aunt within 2 days..

Hey Everybody,

Some of you might remember me from my post back in 2009 about losing my dad suddenly (only 54.) Now my dad's father has gone to be with the Lord. He was blessed to live 97 years. I'm in so much agony and pain right now because I can't make it to his funeral. To me, the funeral is like the beginning of the grief process. Now I have guilt because I did a mapquest but my mom and I didn't recognize the directions. By the time we were on the right path we had to call my Uncle because there was no way we would make it to the funeral on time. I just started crying as we drove back home. My mom and I were looking forward to this trip. I just feel like some people might be a little upset because we didn't show up. We did the best we could. My mom is a diligent worker and she was willing to pay respect to her father-in-law. She's still going through so much with losing her husband and working 2nd shift. I hope everyone knows how much I love and miss him!

Well, two days later my Aunt passed suddenly. She went into cardiac arrest (so they say.) She had an abusive husband and we all suspect foul play in her case. Just weeks before she died, I was told that my uncle was saying "I'm going to be a millionaire now!" My great aunt was so humble and loved by many. She didn't deserve this. I'm just glad that she's with the Lord. I would go insane if I didn't have Jesus in my life.

Thanks for reading,
