Look mom! No hands.

This is me and my Aunti Sue. I know I am really young but I remember this moment. Aunti Sue kept saying "Don't let go of me, hold on." Obviously she was holding me but wanted me to feel as though I was swimming on my own. I was so happy because no one else would let me swim by myself. My Aunti Sue was the one who taught me how to swim.

Tuesday afternoon my Aunt lost consciousness while driving with my Banga(grandma). She hasn't regained consciousness and was taken off life support last night. My dad called to say that she is on autopilot. That while her body is struggling to keep working, she isn't there anymore.

My Aunt Sandra passed almost exactly one year ago due to a life long struggle with Lupus and other medical issues. And now I'm supposed to let my Aunti Sue go, and I'm not sure I can.
