Sad day today........

I just received some bad news. My Aunt Nancy aka Sass passed away. She was also Chele's aunt. (Chele's dad and my Mom are brother and Sister- Sass was their Sister) Sass had diabetes and has been in and out of the hospital for years. She also had kidney disease because of the diabetes and has been working on getting on a transplant list for years. The diabetes made this a difficult journey always pulling her two steps back. She recently found out she most likely would not be put on the list because of her heart, blockages that couldn't be cleared. She has had several heart attacks and was just hospitalized a few weeks back for one. Last week she was admitted again to the hospital due to some more blockages. This morning she went into cardiac arrest and passed away. We just celebrated her 50th birthday this summer. We are all in shock. We knew she was really ill but she always got well enough to leave the hospital.


We'll miss ya Sass....Here is a pic of here with Chele. This is the only one I could find . This was the Christmas of 2006. Just a few months later our Grandmother passed away. I know that Sass and her Mom are together now.
