Rob and I, and his brother Steve, went to visit their Aunt Dorothy today for the final time. She is eighty-two, and is a wonderfully sweet woman. She is dying of pancreatic cancer and isn't expected to make it through the night tonight. We really just got to sit with her for a bit because she was in so much pain she was heavily sedated--but we did have a sweet visit with her children. My husband and his brother have tender memories of their childhood and this darling aunt. Tonight, I am so grateful for the blessings of family. I am grateful for the opportunity to be influenced and touched by them. I feel so blessed to have them in my life and I want all of my family to know how much I love them. :)
