So Many....

This past week has been very rough around here. Four deaths. My friends had it really bad. I was sadden for them. I tried to be of comfort as much as possible. I hope I was.
Two friends from high school lost loved ones. One his father, another his grandmother. My great aunt passed away as I mentioned earlier. Her service was very nice and to over 200 people that packed the sanctuary at the church. Tommy lost his mother to cancer Wednesday morning. He was by her side as she drew her last breath. (I wish I could make the service, but I have to work tomorrow. He understands.)

I have emailed, texted, spoken with them all and sent a copy of "When I Leave" to them. It wasn't much but it was all I could do. I hate to see my friends sad. Death brings that awkward moment, when you want to reach out and provide comfort, but you aren't sure exactly how to do it or what to say. I let them all know I'm there for them. I hurt for them. They are in my thoughts. And wished them each whatever they needed to get through it and move on. I can only hope that was enough.

I too am sorry for your events; how sad to have so many go at the the same time.
