Having a large extended family is great on holidays and birthdays. The horrible part of having such a large extended family? Their deaths.
My dad has 8 siblings, and my mom has 13. Each of my aunts and uncles have healthy amounts of children of their own, who in turn have 5+ children each, like good procreating Catholics.

This morning, I received a 5 am wake-up call that my 4-year-old nephew passed away from asthma complications. He had fluid in his lungs and they couldn't do anything to save him. Over Easter, my 25-year-old cousin kicked the bucket suddenly. These things come in threes, so I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Who's next?
