The Good, bad and sad

What a week it has turned out to be. I had this post ready last Wednesday to put up, but life got in the way. I wanted to write about Family day at the Tribeca film festival (awesome time), my son got into the charter school we wanted (yippee) and talk about how bad spring has been to my son's allergies. He's suffering so much. I really can't wait for May to pass.
Then we got the news early Tuesday morning that my Aunt passed away. She was the matriarch of our family, my mom's older sister. We knew this day was coming, but we just didn't know it would be this soon. She was diagnosed with cancer in February, which had spread unfathomably and with her bad heart she just couldn't do chemotherapy like she wanted. She was a strong fighter with some baby blues in a petite package. In the end, we all knew that it was best she went now before the worst began.
See you later Aunt Mary and say hello to all those we have lost in the past. Tell my Dad, Grandpa and Nana that I miss them. I know that I have a great group of angels watching over me and my family. Love you all
