Today is the seventh anniversary of my mother's death. She was 89 when she passed away. My mother was widowed 32 years prior and never loved another man.
One year ago today, I was in Texas at the funeral of my aunt, my mother's sister who was six years her junior. My aunt also died at the age of 89, six years after my mother's passing. The intertwining family life events were overwhelming for me. My aunt was also widowed approximately 25 years prior and she never loved again.
I have many good (and a few heartbreaking) memories that will stay with me forever. You only have one biological mother in this life and she should always be remembered.
