Many of you know my Aunt Sue has been living with us the past few months. She was diagnosed with cancer over 5 years ago and wasn't expected to live for more than two years.
Susan Marie Aegerter passed away at 8:40 pm on Monday, June 1, 2009.
She was a fighter! A "Super Human" as we called her!
Brett and I had just arrived in Alaska when we heard the news. I didn't think it would hit me as hard as it did, it wasn't unexpected, it wasn't tragic...but it was tough.
Aunt Sue and I had never been close before, but I had the opportunity to help care for her these past few months and we developed a very close friendship. I was able to help her write her personal history and through that experience I got to know much more about her life struggles and joys.
I never got the chance to talk to her one last time. During the process of caring for her, I never took the chance to step back and express my feeling to her - so I'm making a list of all of the things that I loved about her to put in her casket...
Here are just a few:
I love the smirk that came across your face when you thought what you said was funny.
I love that when I asked who your favorite athlete was you said "Alexis Johnson"
I love how girly you were; even when you could barely walk you would trick me into taking you to the bathroom to check your weight or into taking you to the mall to buy a new outfit
I love that just by looking at you I could see the love God had and still has for his daughter
