What do you do...

...when it saddens you on the news of the demise of a distant relative? Even when you had just "seen" the person couple of times? When there has been no interaction with this person? When there has been no emotional attachment?

It hurts me to think how a person perfectly fine two days before, gets a fever and the next day we hear of the demise.
It hurts me to think that the person was just 40 years old.
It hurts me to think about his wife.
It hurts me to think about his children with the youngest child just 10 months young.
It hurts me to think how suddenly all this happened, how it has left everyone totally shocked and unprepared for this sudden death in the family.

I'm feeling very low today just thinking about it. And it again makes me realize how uncertain life is. You do not know whats in there for your the next day.



  2. thats so true NM...

    I can feel your pain and the futility it brings to everything.

    but we must trudge on and make things happen and keep things going.

    help out that family with some time and involvement. remember them on happy days and stay involved that's all you can do.

  3. ...such is life.
    Reminder for us to not take things for granted.
