My Aunt Regina Ritell

Siritha Ritell
She was not born alone for she has a twin Renea Ritell. However, she stood out on her own. She was a beautiful woman inside and out! Her personality was so magnetic. I loved her presence when she walked in a room. And her laugh! She could make the entire room laugh with her. We lost her to cancer in 2001 at the age of 45. While in Hospice care at home, I went to see her. I sat there in silence and watched her for a while until I couldn't take it anymore. To see someone so full of life..silenced. I kissed her and walked away. That was the last time I saw her breathing. Writing this brief paragraph has me in tears. Other than my great grandmothers this was the first death I experienced that was so close to me and hurt me deeply.You are so missed Aunt Regina!!!! I loved you so!!!
