She was 90. She died in April. I’m just now finding out about this because I cut that side of the family off totally in 2013.

I’m having a lot of mixed emotions. If you believe in prayer and you could send some my way, it’d mean a lot to me.

I don’t have regrets. I tried my best with her and that whole side of my family after they refused to participate in my life after my dad died. She loved me in the way she could, and I tried to have a relationship with her, but my safety had to come first.

This was a really shitty way to find out though, two months later.
