    My Aunt just died

    She is someone I am very conflicted about. She died an hour ago after many years of drinking herself to death. 😓

    Iím sorry for your loss.
    It can be hard watching people make decisions that are not good for them. But sometimes thatís what you have to do.
    It makes sense that you would be sad about it.
    Sorry 😔

    She was my my momís brotherís wife. She cheated on my uncle with my dad and effectively destroyed our family and hers . My father was the major culprit and evil. She was a very abused child. She was also my momís best friend from the time they were 14 and 17 ( my mom) up until stuff happened with my dad 30 years ago.

    I imagine the conflict is: grief for the loss of a family member, perhaps relief that her suffering is over (and maybe the end of suffering for family members who were affected by her drinking), maybe even anger at times for drinking herself to death.

    Whatever you are feeling- it is all real. And it all may come and go in waves.

    Honor and remember good things about her if you can. Light a candle for her spirit. Support yourself and family members.

    Condolences to you and your family

    It is sad. Tomorrow I have to tell my dad he doesnít know and he was with her for 15 years.

    My mom is a mess as is her brother.

    My Aunt was with another man the last 10 years but I never knew him.
