A small goodbye

Rest in peace dear great-aunt Nancy. Your funeral is starting right now, I’m sorry I couldn’t be there. I remember your birds, smoking (sorry you were the only relative I knew that smoked) and wry smile. You were always very kind to my sister and I, and had a way of talking to my cantankerous grandfather that blew my 10-year old mind. I’m sorry I haven’t seen you for many years, I hope to see you on the other side. I’m glad you’re no longer in pain.

Truly,

~me
