Running out of relatives

My Aunt Mary lost her fight with cancer, when we all thought she would get better.  I found out that my last Uncle, passed.  Uncle Chuck had alzheimer's and his body finally gave up.  

I have lost two first cousins, over the years, and one first cousin has ALS.  I have lost my two younger siblings.  

My father's side of the family have all lived long lives, unlike my mother's family. My mother had many siblings that passed before she was born.  Mama was 40 years old when she died of cancer.  

I am not worried that my relatives are disappearing, as this girl is not fixin' to die anytime soon.
