    I'm......god, it's so hard to describe what I'm feeling since I've lost another family member this week after she'd been in the hospital ever since January 14, 2020.

    It all began when she tripped over one of those damned concrete block-type of things that you always see in front of any store. She fell and broke her shoulder at that point and then she was hospitalized and put in ICU due to developing a MERCER infection.

    She never came home after that and she sadly passed away peacefully early Wednesday morning around 3:00 a.m. with her sister & husband by her side. She was only in her early to mid-60s and was one of my favorite aunts. Her only son is taking it very, very hard. He won't even talk about her or what happened. I know that's not a good thing and it will eventually "eat him up inside" if he doesn't let some of that grief out.

    The visitation & funeral will both be held tomorrow. I'm still deciding whether I want to go or not or whether I want to just remember her as she was when she was alive during the good times in her life. I don't want my last memories of her being the one lying in a casket.

    This whole week has just been a nightmare.......:cry::cry::(:(

    Please do remember my entire family in your prayers if you're a praying person....and even if you're not, remember us in your thoughts.

    Thanks.......from a broken-hearted TDPRI'er.........

    Take Care,
    Tony T.

    @tonytrout - aww snap
    Sorry about this week (and since Jan)
    If you're feeling up to it, attend and see how many other folks this beloved aunt (also) touched during her life.
    My dad didn't have a service, because he didn't want that, but I make it a point to go to others' because I want to see the others who have a new void in their lives, and let them know they aren't alone.
    Again, so sorry.
    Peace - Deeve

    Sorry, man.....it's often tough to lose family members.
    ....and, at your age, it will only become more frequent. It never really gets easy. :(

    You're in my prayers, friend; so sorry for your family's loss.

    My Mom's untimely demise also was the result of a fall in a parking lot.

    Man I feel your pain. My Aunts were a nice part of my younger years and they are getting up in age. Like nojazz said it unfortunately happens more as things roll along.
    Not one to tell folks what to do but it might be nice in the grand scope of things to go to the visitation... and man I don't ever like those things either. Hang in there.

    So sorry man. I have one aunt left.... the youngest of the bunch. The bad thing about getting old is everyone you know dies. I will say this, falling at old age is a major event. Broken bones seem to lead to many issues for old folks. I keep trying to get myself to slow down and move carefully.
    My wife broke both bones above her ankle last year. She stumbled from just one step high onto grass!.

    Tony, so, so sorry for your loss. Each day we have on Earth is a gift, and you never know what the next turn brings. Being a couple of decades ahead of you, I've buried lot's of older friends. It hurts, and there's plenty of tears, but usually there's lots of old pictures and good stories shared of good times. For me, I find it helps the healing process. Peace to you brother as you grieve- TP

    Sorry for your loss Tony. At times like this you will be given the strength to see it through. And, please attend the funeral out of respect for her.
