Well, it's Tuesday, and I guess I should post this up before I forget about it... I think it was.. well either Saturday or Sunday night, we got a call that my Auntie Ying passed away earlier that day at around 11:30am...

Actually although she has had a menu full of medical issues, her death was sudden and unexpected.

In fact, they said she'd been doing fine (for all these years!) up until Wednesday... nothing changed, there'd been no new sudden anything to bring it about, but immediately after a blood test result that showed her organs failing, she began to really go downhill.  Luckily they were able to get her son here from Seattle before the end.

Not her eldest daughter from China though.

This brings up an important point: I need to find appropriate funeral attire, because this is just going to be the first of what I see will be a steady stream of funerals I'll be attending in the next few years.

Unfortunately, it is summer and everything is either not-black or way too happy and "look at me!"... well in clothes of the female type, anyway.  Men seem to have it way easier.
