Death of my Aunt and Suicide of my Uncle in the same day and Light Years Lyrics

On February 16th my dear Aunt Merrill died in the hospital due to multiple infections caused by a pre blood cancer (MDS). Hours after her passing my Uncle Drove to an abandoned building and shot himself in the face, he died. I loved my Aunt she was so cool and a Pearl Jam fan as well. I can't help but think of Light Years lyrics. She is now light years away. I feel so sorry for my cousin now left with no parents. Goodbye Aunt  Good Bye..
"And wherever you've gone
And wherever we might go
It don't seem fair
Today just disappeared
Your lights reflected now
Reflected from a far
We were but stones
Your light made us stars" 

-Pearl Jam

    No time to be void or save up on life
    You've got to spend it all

    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    I'm so sorry to hear about this Eric.  Light Years has hit me over the past several months due to loss as well.  I hope your family is getting through this okay and you are in my thoughts.
    Folded over, forced in a choke hold
    Outnumbered and held down
    All of this talk of rapture
    Look around at the promise NOW,...
    Here and now

    My heart goes out to you and your family Eric, a fucking tragedy. ... I read this after just crying through “Come Back” thinking about everyone I’ve lost.’
    I get it cycle of life, why does it have to be so hard.

    Stay strong my friend... especially for your cousins.

    When you take care of someone in difficult times, you give yourself more strength to go through these terrible things.
    24 years ago I had exactly these friends who helped me to survive my loss.
    Be this friend for your cousin, it will weld you together forever.

    My sincere sympathy in this terrible time. 
  • So sorry to hear about your loss... 
    I'll never forget when I woke up to find my mother died in her sleep..  I couldn't wait for the day to be over, so I could play Light Years and begin to process.......
