R.I.P. - My Aunt

Yesterday, she lost her long battle with cancer, which lasted for well over two decades. It spread into her lungs about a month ago, and it was determined to be a terminal case two weeks ago.
I have to say I am more than just a bit impressed at how she managed to make the most of the last couple of weeks. She kept a clear head, she managed to spend some quality time with the whole family, and she managed to spend her last week at her home, which was exactly what she wanted to do. It sucks that she died of a nasty case of cancer, but the way she handled things gave me a lot of admiration of her spiritual strength.
I don't know what else to say here, other than I am somewhat torn between admiring how she handled things and feeling bad that she's actually gone.
