sometimes



the nothing becomes a something
and
sometimes a something is almost too much to bear
so one wants to stay in the nothing


there was a house fire last evening
six houses up the road from us
it is the house of a friend of ours
a friend we have had for a very long time

my friend didn't make it out of the fire
and her husband is in the burn unit in Richmond Va
with 3rd degree burns
and a broken heart

while we were having dinner
my friend died
and
 I can't understand

Oh M! I am heartbroken for you and your loss. I can't even begin to imagine how you are feeling. No words can say or cover the amount of devastation you must be feeling. I am just simply sorry M.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss Marilyn. I don't know what else to say or do to give you comfort but I do so wish I was closer to you so that I could do something - anything that could help. I am so truly, truly sorry.

Sometimes there just aren't words to say.

Praying for you and those close to your friend.
