about 5 years ago i lost my mother. it was devastating.

and now, my best friend/roomie has lost hers. it's also devastating.
i'll be taking the next few days off to be with her and some of our friends who are flying out to join A- and her family for the services.

each parental loss i and my friends experience tells us how finite family is; our friends become our family.

My condolences to your roomie. You're a good friend to fly out to lend her emotional support.

What the hell is going on these days? My cousin's mom is still terminally ill with ovarian cancer, my mom's best friend has brand-new aggressive breast cancer, and my friend's brother-in-law just died. I want death and cancer to just take a little break for a while.
