A couple of days after his friend's viewing, my boyfriend gets a call from his step-brother, saying his step-mother, who had been battling stage four breast cancer for the past few months, was not doing well and that he should come to his father's house to see her before she passes. I came to the house later in the evening and spent a few hours there in what would be her final hours. She passed away early the next morning. The following day I learned from a work colleague that her husband's brother had passed away that same day, and all I could think of is why are there so many people dieing this month? Is August of 2012 cursed with people I know or people that friend's and family know dieing? My boyfriend heard word this past week of another two more people he knows who died, one was a man he had worked with in the past and the other a man who he had gone to school with. Today was my boyfriend's step-mother's funeral. She no longer has to live with the pain she had been going through for the past several years. Now that August has come to a close, I hope next month will bring better, happier news, and no more death to people we know.
