    Im turning to you for help

    Well this is and probably will be one of my hardest posts to type..

    At 0230 Christmas morning my aunt, who is retired LEO in Atlanta, passed away to a losing battle with cancer. She has been fighting since April when she was diagnosed and now her pain and suffering has ended... RIP....

    rangerman2003, very sorry to hear of your loss. Times like this are some of the toughest there are to go through. I'll be praying for you and family. I've been through this, losing my father after years of struggle with his health. Keep hold of the good memories and honor who she was. We're with you here on CC.

    Rangerman,
    I've also been thru this with my father years ago . The best way for me to work thru it was to remember ALL the good times we had.

    My prayers are with you and your family.

    My deepest condolences for your loss. Just know that her suffering has ended and she is in a much better place.

    Hang in there.

    My condolences to you and all family.

    Losses are hard to bear, any time - but somehow seeming more cruel when on a day like this. It is good she is at rest and free of pain but above all celebrate her life and all the memories that accrued.

    Be strong, as best you can.
