Go Rest High...on That Mountain.....

Aunt Helen passed away...yesterday....I just got the call...from Judy....her lovely daughter....this afternoon...
Helen has been on my heart... Knowing...that her Journey is almost through...here on Earth....
Thinking back on the Long Winded conversations...we have had....We both stood firmly together...on Politics....oh my...
She was very Sharp...and really kept up with everything....I admired her...She was always 'Put Together'....{I guess I Missed that Gene!} I remember going to visit....and Helen was always perfect.....She and Mom would always Laugh and Carry On!!!! They would sing...Czech songs... and dance....{I got that gene...oh dear!} I remember always loving to go visit her... her home was lovely....also...always...perfect....
She and Mom were very close in age.... just a year or so apart... They were often mistaken as twins....I haven't made the announcement, to mother...yet....I am searching my heart....trying to find a way...that will be the easiest, on her heart....I don't know if that's possible....
I've been working on stuff...for the show....scraping...and scrubbing....It was Hot...here today...but I found some shade...and a breeze...and all was right with the world...
A nice Gal stopped by...and found some neat old treasures.... as she was leaving...a White Hearse...made it's way up the hill....to the Fairfax Cemetery....where my Dad is...Liz had called yesterday...and told me she would be coming out, to this internment....a friend of hers...Jenny.....had passed away....30 years old....beautiful....beautiful....young woman....two children....A Lost Soul....Liz sent me her obituary....by her picture...you would think...she was soooo happy....and had the World on a String...
The young visitor, and I just stood there.....in silence...what do you say...
Usually...my mouth is in high gear.....always a thought...or opinion....not these days....I find....I am more and more...at a loss...for words....
Love...to you....

My grandma was the last in her family to go and sometimes that is quite hard. Seems like the years just go so quickly!

It's very hard, to see... Makes me think of my own mortality....
I know what it's like losing a sibling... it leaves a gaping hole...Mom is the oldest... and I think that is double hard...
Love to You...
