Anna, I'm so sorry for your loss. When someone dies suddenly it is such a shock. This happened with my mother and I still retrace all the days leading up to her death. Your Aunt Becky knows she was loved by you and that is the greatest gift you could have given her.

Oh Anna...I'm SO very sorry. What horrid news. My deepest condolences to you, and to all your family.
