Missing Irene…

Yesterday evening my mom, sisters, aunt and I decided to head to the funeral home to pay our respects and show love to a family who has just lost someone close to them. I didn’t think anything of it until we pulled into the driveway and it took everything in me not to burst out into tears.

I haven’t been to that funeral home in two years and I didn’t at all expect to get the sick feeling that I got when I walked through the door. It’s been two years since my aunt passed and I remember having to hold up my little cousins as we all struggled to view her body.

I’ve been to that funeral home hundreds of times in my life. I’ve had distant family leave from this earth and friends make quick departures. Being in that particular funeral home never ever bothered me until I had to bid farewell to someone that I was so close to and loved so dearly. Yesterday, all the emotions that I felt two years ago somehow met me at the door.

I walked away from there feeling empty. There’s a space in my heart that my aunt used to fill and even tho she is still in my heart I miss her dearly. I pray that I wouldn’t have to step foot into that funeral home anymore in the near future. I dont think I could stomach too many more visits. But for some reason I think that I’mm be seeing a lot of James A. Morton and Sons.
