sad news

my best friend from elementary school sent me a text this afternoon to tell me her dad died after a battle with cancer. i feel so sad for her. she lost her mom a few years ago, and now her dad. her parents were older than most parents of 27-year-olds, but it’s still hard for me to imagine having lost both of my parents at this point in my life.

i really want to go to the funeral, but it’s on a tuesday, and i just don’t know if i could make it back up to maryland for it at such short notice. i’m so sad for her, and since i’ve never been through that kind of loss myself, that’s all i can say. i think she understands.

    That is very sad. No one should have to lose both parents so early.

    My thoughts are with your friend and her family.

    what a terrible event to have happen so early in life. i always hope and pray that my parents will make it well into their 90’s, but really you never know when something could happen. we have to cherish every day and always let people know how much we love and appreciate them.

    Aw, that sucks. You’ve said the important things, though. Now, just remember to follow up with her… even after most people have moved on with their lives and stopped mentioning it. From my friends who have experienced this kind of loss, that is the critical step.

    Sending lots of good wishes to you and your friend.
