Another lost loved one… #SOL22 #Day19

My Uncle and Aunt

Yesterday, was 5 weeks since mom passed.

Yesterday, I found out my Uncle Condy passed.

In June 2020 our Aunty Betty, my mother’s sister and wife of my uncle passed.

How we used to love to go visit Columbia KY when we were little.

We’d eat the freshly slaughtered bacon, play slapjack, get our hair done, and laugh and talked forever – our aunt, uncle, and 3 cousins.

We’d go to the little store for cheese and bologna.

We loved being together.

Time came between us and we eventually stopped visiting as much as we used to do.

The last time my mom, sister, and I were there was for Aunt Betty’s viewing. Monterry, my husband, joined us. I had so much fun sharing stories about Columbia KY.

And now I find myself again, gearing up for a quick trip and wishing my mom were with me. She was the first person I wanted to call when I found out about my uncle.

Then I thought, I don’t need to call her because her, Aunt Betty and Uncle Condy are laughing up in Heaven living a beautiful life, without pain, looking down on us.

Love you all and love the memories that we had. Family.

  1. So sorry….let me finish properly….I am happy you can write down your memories with the specific details like you did hear. I felt like I was there, too. I hope these memories bring you some comfort.

  2. I’m sorry to hear of this second loss in your life. Sometimes it just feels like there is too much all at once. All we can do is keep putting one foot in front of the other, moving forward. I love the image you drew of your mother and your aunt and uncle gathering together once again. And there is no pain anymore. Stay strong.
