This time of year, i am asking about human family ,and friends, I miss my son, most of all, then my dad, my grandparents.
I RELATE TO THAT,people are so busy, too busy.I miss my dad, he passed away November 2010. My son will be coming home for Christmas which I'm grateful for.
I also miss not being close to some of my long time friends and family members-they all live out of state. Seems like they're all so busy with their own families and friends.
I have a girlfriend that lives in a nearby state-we use to talk to each other monthly and got together every couple of months. Now if I talk to her once or twice a year, and see her every three or 4 years, we're doing good. She's far busier than I am, I can always make the time. She's my son's God Mother, I really miss talking and spending time with her.I RELATE TO THAT,people are so busy, too busy.
Thanks for sharing this story about your aunt. I never heard about this condition before.I miss my grandmother who passed in 2009 of cancer, but more than anyone I miss my Aunt Kim who passed away at the age of 42 this past April. We were very close, and since she couldn't have children of her own she always treated me like her own daughter. Before her death in April she was interviewed by the local newspaper about her medical issue, Cataplexy, which ultimately led to her death. She died a week after it was published and the journalist who interviewed her wrote a wonderful article about her. Below is the original article, as well as the one written after her death if you would like to read about her. My Aunt Kim was an amazing person.

Kim and Dan had an amicable separation not long before she passed. They still loved each other, and he was still there for her (taking her to her appointments, going out to dinner, just being together), but with the stress of her illness, as well as his (what the article doesn't say is that Dan has a brain aneurism that is inoperable, which caused him to have a stroke about 3 years ago) they decided that some time apart would be best for each of them. If anyone were to ever question his devotion to her I would put them in their place in a hurry.Thanks for sharing this story about your aunt. I never heard about this condition before.
One section in the story confused me.... at one point it talked about Kim's husband Dan how he stuck by her and her illness, then later in the same article talked about her apartment in which she lived alone.
Also, did you finally get closure on what the exact cause of death was?
I am so sorry, as the years go by, more are gone, i try to keep in my heart ,and mind, how much shane loved this time of year.Who I miss? Hmm.. a lot of people. My sister, Mom, my brother, my Dad, the family I no longer have. At least their passing has removed my fear of death, now I know they did it so what is the fear of it happening to me?
This season really doesn't have any meaning left to me and is just another day, hubby and I go to the movies.
