Aunt Syl, We Miss You
Rob's Aunt Syl passed away last week. She was such a trooper. She fought breast cancer for several years. Very recently, the doctors informed her though, that the cancer had come back and spread into her spinal cord.
She was almost done with her radiation treatments but they were taking alot out of her. At the same time, she was fighting emphysema and in the end, that is what did her in. She just couldn't fight anymore and passed away peacefully.
We are grateful that the kids and we got to see her and spend time with her right before her passing. Rob was actually the last one to be with her and as he explained, it was a life changing moment.
Zack is taking it the hardest because Aunt Syl spent much time taking care of him until the age of 7. He told her that she had been the most important person in his life.
Rest in peace Aunt Syl-we will never forget you. You will live with us forever.
