My Auntie Lillian passed away this past Monday.
She was my mother's oldest sister. I find it hard to write about her.
She died of a brain aneurysm. They were able to operate on her but she was just not strong enough to recover.
It brings back so many memories for me, as my mother also suffered from a brain aneurysm.
A couple of my sisters visited my aunt at Harborview a couple of weeks ago. The said she looked so much like my mother when she had her brain aneurysm and that it was very hard to see her. I could not find the strength to go see her before she died.
I am sure she was welcomed warmly into heaven by her husband, Uncle Jack, her siblings Art and my mother Marie as well as her parents, Takeko and Shigetoshi.
Take care Auntie Lillian. You will be greatly missed.
