So I’m Back

We drove home to New Jersey this past weekend to bury my Aunt on Monday. So it’s truly official now, she’s gone. It took a lot for me to sing the last song she would ever hear from me but I managed to get through it. It wasn’t my best rendition but it was what it was and she understood the sentiment behind it. But none the less it still hurts. They put an obituary in the paper and it didn’t even mention all of us, instead it mentioned a host of friends and family which is stupid because Shell didn’t really like people all that much. Those who were worth mentioning were my family and her best friend thats it! Not sure what I will do now that I don’t have her to talk to like I’m so used to doing, not too sure how to feel. Some days I am sad and others I am ambivalent in a different place now. With a different set of thinking and maybe even understanding.
