My family deals with grief by making things.
On the left is a photo of the postcard and stamp I made when I heard about my aunt’s death. The postcard was one of the four cards I made that was displayed with my aunt’s photos.
The flowers were designed by another aunt (under the art direction of my mother, as she likes to say). The signs were some of the few things I hastily calligraphed on the day of her wake.
It’s been a month since her hospitalization, and almost 3 weeks since she passed. I’m still trying to process the fact that we won’t be spending the holidays with her this year.:(
Rest in peace, Auntie. We love you.
