Accept some comfort in that community and also know that our tears flow for your pain, even though we may only feel a ragged corner of it.
Damn tears lead to a stuffy nose.
PS - a friend once wrote me about her loss, saying "I don't want to belong to your ****ing club. Truth is, we all join the club, eventually.
Thanks Roni! I really appreciate it! We do all join the club. I am thankful for so many things and not the least of which is knowing my mother lived a very full & beautiful life. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have that opportunity. And not everyone has the great fortune I have had with having my mother for as long as I did. I am extremely thankful for that.
