Its been a year since my aunt died, from cancer, I miss her a lot, the tradition that she carried, and shared with me and my family, is a big loss. She spent a lot of time with her nieces and nephs as much as she could and our children as well. teaching and passing on traditions that might have been lost. During gatherings I would follow my aunts around and ask what to do, and try and learn. This time during the memorial it was more the nieces and nephews along with my dad who were the main task doers. i stepped back a little bit and let the other ones take charge, I am still doing some tasks and at the same time taking care of my family. It is so hard to look at her belongings and see her memory and not cry. I only have my dad, one aunt and one uncle now on my dad's side, and on my mom's side, I have 2 uncles, one aunt and my mom. I m thankful for there prensence in my life, but I miss the ones that have passed on. The ones that have passed on are the ones that were the main presence in my life and the ones that spent the most time with me. So now I am taking on a different role in life, where our generation in my family is stepping up as the elders in our family. Its very lonesome when your leaders in your life leave and you then step up and have to take some leading. I am so lonesome for them.
