I'm not going to lie - it hurts right now. I'm a mess and I didn't even get to see her as often as I wanted to. I can't begin to imagine what her husband and sons are feeling. I know we'll be ok in the long run, but right now I can't see it. However, my Mom just sent me something that we both think Auntie Anne would have approved of, considering who she was. Here it is:
" Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colourfully, or you're not alive." -- Mel Brooks
So that's what I'm going to do.
