Sad news regarding my aunt. Thoughts and prayers please.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I'm in shock... I just got a call from my mother in tears. Apparently my Aunt, who I haven't seen in a few years, was found dead in her bed this morning. She was found by her son. It's too soon to know what happened, but I guess she had been sick or not feeling well for a few days or something. The police have the house taped off and no one can go in.

It's strange because I was just talking about her the other day. I thought I saw my uncle (her husband) at the movies and I said hello but he didn't say anything, he probably didn't recognize me. It's been quite a long time since we've seen them as since my Grandfather died (her father, my mom's step) we slowly lost contact. They didn't even come to my wedding.

I've never had anyone, especially a family member, pass away suddenly like this...especially so young. She was only in her 50's.

Thoughts and prayers please.

I don't know what the chances are of this, but I just had a thought of maybe she had Meningitis. I was just watching on the news last night a report of a girl who died from it within 34 hours or so. If my mother said that she heard she hadn't been feeling well in the past few days, it's a possibility.

Is your family considering an autopsy to find out?

My condolences to you and your family, Rob. People do drop dead at all ages, and the one consolation is that it's much, much better than a long, painful death.

Yes I'm sure they are. Both my sister and myself think that it could be Meningitis. There have been some reported cases lately.

She was actually 49. She would have been 50 in January.

I just feel so bad for my cousins. I forget how old they are...I think 15 (twins) and 19. My cousin, her son, found her when he went to say goodbye to her before he left for work and she wasn't responsive. My uncle had left for work at 5am and I wonder if she was still alive then. It makes me appreciate that my wife and I say I love you every night and say goodbye to each other each morning even if one of us is sleeping.

I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt. I would be devestated if my aunt was to pass away. She is the mother figure in my life. We kid around that she is more like our older sister. You and your family are in my prayers.

We found out the cause of death. She died of a Cerebral Aneurysm. I guess she was having headaches off and on for a few days but nothing serious enough that would make her want to go to the hospital. No blurry vision, vomiting etc.. So unfortunately there were no real warning signs... I suppose in hindsight, but who usually goes to the doctor for a headache that isn't really severe that just won't go away? It's just tragic.

We have the wake tonight and I guess it will not be an open casket wake. There is a viewing before hand but we won't be able to make it in time, which I'm sad about. I wanted to be able to say goodbye and have my wife see her because they never met. Then the funeral is tomorrow.

I know this will bring us all closer together. Both my mother and my aunt's sister realized even more how it was not right that we hadn't been close all these years and they're wanting to change that.
