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.
