Tragedy Strikes

My parents came over yesterday, and the told me that someone very dear to me had passed away. 

My Uncle Ivan has been a huge part of my life, and we have a very special bond. He had a massive heart attack in his 30s that killed about 3/4 of his heart. He should have a died a long time ago, but God kept him alive for another 40 years. I love my Uncle very much, and the news really rattled me. I had a good cry, and I'm doing better. 

Going to the funeral is a must for me, so we'll be in Arizona next week. Which means there probably won't be any blogging next week.

It was a day of mourning yesterday. Sister Monson passed away yesterday morning as well.

My mom took me and my sister out shopping after I stopped crying. She wanted to buy us a new outfit for the funeral. It was fun but hard. I had fun buying a new skirt, but it was hard because I knew I'd be wearing it for my Uncle's funeral. 

I hope I can hold it together to get through next week. I think I will. I haven't been to a funeral in over 10 years. 

I will miss my Uncle, but I know he is in a better place, and that gives me comfort.


  1. so very sorry to hear of your uncle's passing. Sometimes I forget how important someone is to me until they are gone. Thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  2. Kami, so sorry to hear about your uncle! I'm thinking of you.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. My thoughts will be with you.
