Hey family and friends,
Over the weekend there was a double shot of sadness for one of my aunts. I recieved some emails this afternoon about this. Phyllis May, an aunt by marriage lost two of her children over the weekend. Grown adults but none the less her children. Years ago she lost one son and kept on doing her thing , making May's Polsih sausage for many years. The business was passed down to 2nd cousins.
One of her daughter's, Michelle spent most of her life in poor health. Friday night Michelle passed away while sitting in a wheelchair, most likely was heart failure, Michelle always kind and smiling to whomever she met. Michelle was 52.
While this was one blow for my aunt, very early Sunday her son was admitted to the Hospital and died shortly after admittance due to complications from pnemonia. Hankie was the name he went by in the family. Hankie died at 55.
My aunt spent most of her life taking care of these two, they kept her very very busy.
I always looked up to Hankie...the first real hippie type of the May family. Hankie had the 1st waterbed I layed on back in 1969 or so, listened to Jefferson Airplane albums...and the occasional Playboy was always left out in his room.

I talked to my mom just a short while ago and she had been to my aunts and to the services. The funeral home held a double service tonight. I'm sure it was Sheild's Funeral home in KC, very kind of them to give her the service she needed.

I hope yall will send some love my aunt's way. On a brighter note for her, she's expecting her 4th great granchild in a few weeks.

I'll definitely send her some healing, loving energy. What a very heavy load your aunt has had to carry....it shames me to even think I might be having a bad day now and again. God bless her and your cousins....and you too...I know you've got a sorrowful heart tonight.

I can certainly find some love & prayers for a devoted maker of Polish sausage. Love that stuff!

My sincere condolences Jon on the loss of your cousins and I hope you can get your Aunt through this awful time my heart hurts for her.

Just now stumbled onto this thread. I'm very sad for the May family.

It's not natural for parents to survive their children. This happens a lot, though, even to the best of people. My folks lost a son, an uncle lost two daughters, and researching my genealogy, discovered my great-grandfather, Henry Pierson, outlived five of his ten children. Some of our own forum members have experienced this very loss. I can't imagine the grief...

Love and warm, healing vibes to the May family, and to all who have experienced this kind of loss.

Will the circle be unbroken....

So very sorry to hear about this ... untimely death of not only one but two of her children...whether grown adults or not ..they are her children and having them pass first is not the natural order of things.. I feel so sad as I'm sure her heart will be very heavy until the day she sees them again... Sending loving thoughts that are heart felt to the family...

Thank you all for the thoughts, prayers and light sent the way of my family and myself. My aunt's a saint for the years and troubles she endured. She is a prime example of giving unconditional love.
She always seemed to hve a mountain, then there wasn't, then there was again.
She has one hell of a story, one hell of a story. I hope she documents her life.
