The past few days have been really rough with my cousin tragically passing away. Being her cousin as well as a classmate of mine in high school, naturally we would have many of the same friends, especially in a class of 39 people (yes, that is no typo). So it has been my duty to get ahold of all the old friends and inform them of what happened.
The messages I have been getting from everyone have been absolutely wonderful and comforting. It looks like many will come to the wake tomorrow. It will be good to see everyone…that is what friends are for.
I hope I never have to go through this again. It is awful having to summon the courage to inform someone that a friend or relative has passed away. It is even worse to see those same people as sad as I am right now.
It is one thing if someone’s time has come. Her’s hadn’t.
