I am so sorry. I just found out a friend of mine died in November. I had always thought I'd see him and his wife again, so I was sort of knocked for a loop and can relate a little bit to what you're feeling.
I'm so sorry for your loss CWS. I lost my half brother not long before my parents. Mom to cancer and Dad to Alzheimer''s. I wish they had not lived to see it happen. How are your parents with the loss?
