Off again

Unfortunately I'm going to have to postpone my review/recap of the cruise for a few days. Yesterday, when we arrived back at port, I received a message on my cell phone telling me that my favorite aunt, a precious little lady, had passed away the previous day. Baba was 93 years old and had one of the youngest, brightest spirits of anyone I've ever known. She passed at home and suddenly which exactly as she said she'd always prayed for. Obviously, in her case, God was listening.

In all likelihood I am heading up to Atlanta in the morning and back on Wednesday after the service. Seeing as #2 PP has absolutely no regard for her own family, much less anyone else's, I'm not even going to bother telling her I'm going. As soon as she popped off something smart I'd probably slap the shit out of her.

Anyway, I will keep you posted and hopefully be sharing my tales & observations from the sea shortly.

The perfect excuse to give PP#2 what she deserves.

My thoughts are with you, sincerely.

I hope it is a lovely send-off for your Aunt.

As sad as death is, I think going to a funeral can be a very beautiful and moving occasion and a celebration of a life and the circle of life. Times like that remind me of my own mortality and that can be difficult. Hugs.

I agree with Doris, I'm sure it will be a good day.
Hope you had a good holiday!

I hope the funeral was a good one (yes, funerals can be good - I'm with Doris on this), and your beloved aunt got the sendoff she deserved. It sounds like she has left behind a lot of good memories, the best kind of legacy there is.

Hope to hear about everything soon.

Miss you!
