I've been visiting with the mother of one of my best friends who died this past spring due to cancer. I'm still in shock or disbelief I guess. I know how much it hurts me. I can only imagine what his mother is going through. Her grief is palpable. We share our feelings about him, the unfairness, the loss.....and are planning to visit his grave soon. I thought this would get easier, but, I'm still hurting and so is she......I'm not sure she's going to get through this.
