I told her how much I loved her

30 years ago my aunt Jessie passed away after suffering a terrible fall. I was able to sit with her during the last hour of her life. We were alone. I told her how much I loved her and thanked her for all of her teachings and our cherished times together. At the end she had such a hard time breathing, I held her hand and whispered “it’s all right, you can go” and she did. I feel at peace and I know she does too. Love always.
