You can read about it in ksl if you want.
I'm not really sure what to read into this, if anything. My sister in law is left with two girls (10 and 8); all the men in her life gone. My poor mom who's been alone for 12 years has watched her husband go, brother, aunt, son, and grandson.
Anyway, just wanted to pass it along. Misery loves company.
So sorry to hear of your loss. Look for the silver lining, my experience has been even through the darkest moments, something can be gained or learned, even if it is the realization of how many people care about you.
