  11. Oh, God. I've been thinking about you and will continue to do that. I'm so sorry. We offer you metaphorical casseroles (because that is how we deal with grief in this culture, no?). Do you have a P.O. Box? Are freeze-dried casseroles a thing?

    My heart aches for you as if I had lost a loved one myself. Time helps - not that it gets easier. You get stronger.

  20. Catherine.. I am so very sorry. I know how you are feeling... and it's unreal how the world keeps spinning while you and your family are shell shocked with this loss. Shouldn't it have stopped as it's stopped for you?? Sending you blessings and love - and my virtual casserole too and my chocolate chip dump cake. and some liquor. ;) My deepest condolences to you and her family. (hugs) <3
