My aunt Kim died on the 9th.
It wasn't like any dying I'd ever seen. I did not witness her actually passing, but she has been "going" for awhile and was very open, honest, and inspiring about how she chose to go about it.
From my point of view, and it may have been extremely different for her family, it was almost like an ongoing graduation party. Yes, there were bodily fluids coming out of her in uncontrollable fashions, but it didn't seem to stop the over all feeling of excitement to see what her next adventure was to hold. And she tried very hard to have everyone feel that excitement with her.
I hope that is how I can be when it's my turn.
If you feel like a little inspiration of the make-you-want-to-live-your-life-better variety I suggest you head
Here, Here, Here, & Here
You will be glad you did.
Kim, I love you and am so grateful to have had you in my life. Oh! I'm still waiting for you to have this little boy of mine come visit me and tell me his name ;)
