My Niece Passed Away

My 47 yo old niece died on June 11 (my 50th birthday as it turns out). She had a history of at least 25 years of drug issues and mental illness, so while this was the phone call that we all suspected would arrive some day, it was still shocking nonethless if that makes any sense.

Here are my models:

C Melissa
T This is a tragedy
F Distraught
A Ruminate/Speculate on the circumstances of the event
R I feel worse each day

C Melissa
T Melissa is finally at peace
F Relief
A Allow the grieving process to unfold naturally
R I am at peace with what happened
