My aunt and I had a very special bond. I would always fly out to Mexico to visit my aunt whenever I was on vacation. She was a teacher and I would go with her to work to help her out with the students and even taught them some English. I enjoyed spending time with her and never would've imagined losing her. But sadly, I lost her to cancer. I never understood why. Why her? Why did He have to take her. But one thing no one is going take from me is those wonderful memories I have with me.She died 3 weeks after I came back from visiting her. I couldn't attend her funeral because I had school but I clearly remember the last day with her. She told me to stay in school and to remember that she will always love me. To this day, I think maybe God wanted another beautiful angel. I know she's watching over me and taking good care of me. I miss her a lot but I know I'll see her again one day. I know it won't feel the same anymore without her but hey she beat me to heaven!
