The 'C' Word

Not the 4 letter word to describe part of a woman's anatomy. Rather the six letter word Cancer.

I. Hate. It.

For those who have been around you may remember this post.

On Saturday evening Brett gave up his fight. All I can think of is how his mother (my cousin) is feeling at the moment in Sydney by herself with little financial or moral support. Also I am hurting for my Aunty (Brett's Granmother) who is the backbone of that side of my entire family.

People describe how hard it must be to bury a child, how about a grandchild?

Excuse me for a few days if I do not feel like posting.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss and your family's pain.

In spanish, the term for the average sorry such as bumping into someone or burping too loudly is 'perdon'. When something serious occurs and you really mean it, is 'lo siento'.

Lo siento por tu loss my friend.

Thanks Ladies.

I am unsure how to feel with the situation. I do want to help with getting things sorted but I am too far removed to realy be of assistance.

Sometimes there is nothing you can do. In cases like this, you just follow their lead and be there.

Mags - That is what I intend to do. My Aunty is going to need a shoulder so I think I will offer to support her on the day of the funeral.
