15: Loss

Sunday afternoon I lost my aunt. It took me by complete surprise and didn't see it coming at all. My heart just couldn't take seeing my mom break down after losing her sister.

Sunday afternoon is also the time I write my weekly letter to you all. Honestly, I am at a loss of words right now, so this week's letter is just that, a minimal collection of words. I'm sorry.

I also found out that my aunt's family did not have insurance, so a funeral is looking unlikely. It broke my heart, so I started a GiveForward campaign to help raise money for the funeral. If you'd like to give to it, donate here.

I'll be back to my regularly scheduled letter next Monday. Until then, I need some time to reflect and to be there for my family.

Thanks for reading and see you next week.

-James
