Dead and Life.

She died yesterday. My family has all gathered in Ohio. What's weird is that it has been so much more about life than about death. The only parts that hurt are when people wax nostolgic about her life. But the stories are fascinating.

In some ways I can't wait to leave, but in others I'm so happy to be here. The whole situation has made me appreciate my extended family in subtle, but significant ways. I can't find the words right now to explain, but I know it's there.

A death of a close relative is just really hard, but as you say here, it is also about life and connecting with the rest of your family. Sorry for your loss, but glad for the significance you found in your extended family.
