A heavy heart


My heart weighs heavy this Friday evening. A day that we Americans will never forget. I feel bad for a friend his birthday is today, as well. Yesterday, on the 10th of September, I lost my auntie to cancer. Seems like we are losing many to this disease this year.  Merlyn Ostrea will be extremely missed if not already. She gave to those who needed it – you didn’t have to ask she knew! She always put on smile even when when she was not happy! I will miss my happy auntie.  She is no longer in pain and she looking down on us with my Daddy. My last memory of my dad alive she was there as well – so when I remember I will think of both of them and miss them both.

Thank you to all those who have sent their condolences.
