Jonathan's Tante Inge passed away today in her sleep. Isn't it crazy how life can send you such an amazingly incredible emotional high and then a tragedy that causes you to crash back down to earth?
Tante Inge was very ill so this is news we have been dreading. But sort of expecting. But still completely devastating.
I don't know what I believe about what happens to our souls after we die, but I do know that I will probably "talk" to Inge a lot now and that she will be watching over the children and Jonathan and I from wherever she is now. I am so thankful for the times I got to spend with her. Our visit with them in Germany during our honeymoon. And that she showed me how to make her apfelkuchen. And that she got to meet "her boy" Jonathan's children.
