My cousin Sonia died earlier this month, she was only 52 years old. She was diagnosed with cancer less than two months before. My experience of loved ones dying has been minimal (thankfully) but I have experienced death nonetheless. However, this is different. This is someone that has been taken from us, and from her own life way too soon. It’s incredibly surreal, to say the least. As upsetting as it has been, this has really put life into perspective for me, life’s too short.
