At some point in our adult lives we feel as if the people we love will live forever. That they will always be here.

I feel this way about my several of my loved one. My dad, my in-laws, my aunt and so on.

Last night I was reminded we are not immortal. My sweet aunt passed away.

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. One minute I'm laughing the next I'm missing her so much it hurts. She drove me slap crazy sometimes but I loved her big!

I found out from my cousin that my aunt, cousin and her husband were going to come surprise us for Christmas. Instead I'm in the process of working everything out so I can get to New York for her funeral.

My aunt was here in Texas two years ago. She came for 5 days and looking back was it was the best 5 days. She cherished her time here as did we. But she really enjoyed R2. He was always talking to her and giving her hugs and kisses. She talked about him for weeks after she left.

While she was here she got to see R1 play a few baseball games. My parents even came in from Houston to visit as well.

I snapped this photo of my dad and aunt. It's one of my favorites.

I love you Aunt Phyllis and I will miss you terribly, but I will see you again.
