My Aunt's Boyfriend

I thought I'd tell you all a story. My uncle (my mum's brother) died in 2001. He had a heart transplant in around 1989-1990 and his new heart was finally rejected about 12 years on. He had got to a point where he was on the strongest anti-rejection drugs possible, so there was nothing more the doctors could do for him.

A few years after he died my aunt met someone else who had recently lost his wife. After talking to him I worked out a number of things. Firstly he was quite a bit older than my aunt, but you wouldn't really know it, secondly he was worth a mint: he was a founder member of a very exclusive golf club, and despite being in his 70s he still played off 15. The third thing I worked out was that I couldn't stand the guy. He gave me the creeps and I simply didn't trust him. At family gatherings I went out of my way to avoid him, and so did my wife funnily enough.

Anyway, about a year ago my aunt was diagnosed with cancer. She has had various chemo etc but nothing is helping. I went to visit her in hospital a couple of weeks ago (taking my sister with) and didn't recognise her. She is so thin and weak. She really hasn't got long left. On the way home we were talking about my cousin who is an only child and how difficult it must be for her. I then asked my sister where the boyfriend was, to be told that as soon as my aunt was diagnosed he packed his bags an left. He didn't want anything to do with my aunt after that. Apparently he did the same to his wife before she died too.

This has left me fuming. Ok, I was right about him, but that pales into insignificance compared to the disdain I now have for him. How could any "man" do that? I would so love to meet up with him to give him a piece of my mind, and maybe a piece of a 7 iron too.
