Has to be. Can be the only explanation for what has happened today.
Early text from friend and former workmate; a mutual friend of our’s father passed away last night. Sad for our friend who is a good woman and has not had the easiest of roads to hoe…although she’s always managed to do it with grace and a smile.
Later on, received word that the Mrs. first roommate at Sloan Kettering has passed away. They were together during Thanksgiving week 2014 and the roommate passed away about a week after that. Took the wind out of our sails as she was bouncing back so well, or so we thought, from a number of different cancers. She was a good woman and it saddened us to hear that she had succumbed so quickly.
This evening, found out that a woman we went to high school with, and I went to Junior High with, passed away today after a long, courageous battle with ALS. A gentle soul in this world – we even dated for a couple weeks in ninth grade – I think that had more to do with it being spring and she and I were voted Nicest Smile in the yearbook. I understand they don’t do that anymore because too many parents complained. Pity.
How was your day, dear????
