We're going to post soon about the trip, I promise. Work so gets in the way of blogging.
My uncle died today. He's had aggressive lung cancer for a year now so it's no surprise, and it is a blessing. He went peacefully and got to see his daughter, my cousin, before he went. I think he was waiting.
About a month ago, my mom's oldest friend (since high school) died of cancer as well. I hadn't known she was ill.
And now Ted Kennedy...that's enough life cycle for me for a long while, thank you very much.
