My great aunt Voncille died a month ago. My aunt Terri died last weekend. While she was being buried, her father, who lay in the hospital with cancer, also died the same day. My best friend Shane, who I was roommates with for 5 years before he married, is at the hospital now with his dad who is dying. His dad has been in the hospital for 2 weeks now and is steadily getting worse by the day. One of my girlfriends, who is like me and has no human children...only doggie children, told me today that one of her babies is dying of a cancerous tumor.
I have never experienced so much death and dying during a holiday season before. This is too much. Too many of my loved ones are sad and suffering... and I'm sad. We all need some peace and prayers.
