My Aunt Patsy passed away yesterday. I'm not sure what to write, because I'm not sure if I could ever find the right words to describe what an amazing, strong, brave woman she was.
Technically, she's my great aunt, but my mom's side of the family has always been close to our extended family.
She has been fighting cancer for 4 years, and the doctors originally gave her 5.
She was so fun loving. She made it to "Smithfest" from New Jersey every summer, skipping chemo treatments so she could laugh and be surrounded by family.
I have 5 finals, starting Monday. I don't know how I'm going to make this week work out. I know that Aunt Pat would understand that I have finals, but I wouldn't be able to forgive myself for not being with my family. My final on Wednesday is optional, but if I take it, I could end up with an A in the course, rather than a B+. And, I don't have any exams on Thursday. I'm really hoping everything falls on Wednesday and Thursday.( pictures.Collapse )
