I lost 2 people very close to me this year--both were totally unexpected. My husband who was always trying to keep healthy just dropped dead one Sunday afternoon in May, and a very close friend down for a visit a couple of weeks ago,

Thanks for the kind words. You know nothing in our culture really prepares us for the death of those close to us. Maybe thats why its such a shock and hadf to deal with. I do have family for support and am lucky in that way. I have 2 children that need me to be there for them, so I will just keep on keeping on.

HI, glad you found us, and sorry on your 2 losses.

Mine were similar, my Mom died in May and I never knew that first day I saw her in the hospital and she was pretty with it mentally that the next time I saw her dementia hit and hit very very hard, she was buried 2 weeks from the day she went into the hospital.

Then in November, I kissed my husband hi in the morning, and the next time I saw him he was laying dead in a trauma room at the hospital at 8pm.

Sorry you had to join us with two close deaths none the less. :-( Its hard when you have to suffer grief and realize how short and precious life is. I have made sure not to watch the news very often. Anything I need to know I'll hear about. I don't like hearing about deaths anymore, but its a fact of life.

I try to look at life as its short so I should make the best of it. Its hard knowing someone hasn't had to face death yet, but yet I also am glad they don't have to know this pain. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Vent away. That's what we are here for!
