Bear with me as I do not want to seem ungrateful. I have learned so much about points and miles and traveling this past year. I have been to places I thought I would never go for very little money. But this past weekend points and miles were unable to get me home to the funeral of a very close aunt because of Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent cancellations. I am brokenhearted today and just sad about the loss. I just would like to ask all the readers of milepoint and frequent flyers everywhere to make that call today and tell someone who you have not spoken to in awhile what they mean to you. I was lucky my aunt knew and she would have never wanted me to risk my life to go to her funeral but I wish it had worked out differently. Here's to you Aunt Rosemary, I hope you are enjoying being back with all your loved ones and enjoying the best Bingo game ever.
