loss and grief
it's definitely a process. there are pros and cons to sudden death and prolonged illness. my friend kay the funeral gal and i trade stories about the "body count" at her work vs. the mortality rate at mine. it's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.

i don't really remember how we first became friends. she's just always been there and always loved me. same for me. when we were middle school aged brats we drove her daddy's cadillac all OVER the front yard and loved every minute of it. her house burned, but we still had a place to swim! i think it all started at the methodist church, actually.

her dad died when we were teenagers and her mom when we were adults with kids of our own. we went our separate ways in life to different schools and vocations and marriages and children. nuf said.

ms ann, her momma died the long hard way. she had cancer and did the chemo thing and was sick from the get go. kay told me in the midst of it that her wish was for her mom to enjoy her last days playing bridge and having fun and enjoying each day instead of chasing the cure.

this is my opposing view...and i'm stickin' to it. y'all keep the faith. ^j^
