two nights ago, i received an email from my coyusin. his partner,just about the sweetest man on the pklanet has been diagnosed with liver cancer. it's just plain sad.

Yesterday I got news that the son of one of my High School classmates , just 23 died in his sleep.

Today I heard that the son of a friend committed suicide yesterday, on his 35th birthday.

it's just a lot to absorb

So sorry to hear of these tragedies happening so close in time. Please hang in there and vent to us if you need it. I recently lost my FIL to cancer that had spread to the liver. It was the first death I've experienced up close and really reminded me how lucky we are to be alive every day.

Oh my - that is an awful lot to take in. I will keep you, your family, and friends in my prayers.

Every now and again, just stop, take a moment, close your eyes and just breathe... It's kinda of a yoga thing but in times of extreme stress I find it really helps.

Take care Sarah in NYC.
