Aunt Death Poems

Poems for a Dead Aunt

Many aunts hold a special place in the hearts of their nieces and nephews. Aunts are often a source of good, unbiased advice and wonderful friendships. Understandably then, coping with the loss of an aunt can be especially difficult. Many people find solace in crying, talking, and writing about their aunt. Sharing special stories about an aunt with others and reliving shared experiences can keep her alive in memory. It is also a way to celebrate the value of life and family relationships and even validate our reason for living.
