It's been a rough week in our household.
My aunt died on Tuesday, after living with MS for 24 years. Friday night, Matt's grandmother died.
I can't say that either death was unexpected - certainly, we had been warned that his grandmother only had days left - but it's a loss all the same. We saw both relatives just last week when we were up in Michigan.
All this brings to mind something that is pretty cliche, but still true: Tell your loved ones how you feel. Cherish the time with them. Don't hold grudges. Make the best of the time you have.
You won't regret the love you pour out on someone, but you will regret what you kept to yourself.
