I woke to terrifying news that morning. One of my dearest friend's father passed away. When she said the words on the phone they did not register in my brain and I was silent. She asked if I was still there, I could feel the overwhelming pain through the phone line.
My mind searching for the perfect thing to say. No words came to me. . .just "I'm sorry."
My friend so strong, so unbelievably strong is faced with a loss that causes pure shock. Numbness, to get through. No one can ease the harsh blow that follows after the shock lifts.
My friend, my soul sister, I am here.
Death feels so real, so close and inevitable. My heart breaks.
