Stunned

My friend's mom died unexpectedly and stunned is the best word I can come up with for how I feel right now.  I wish Florida wasn't so far away so I could go sit with her.  Her mom always welcomed us into her home, talked to us and fed us great mom food.  She was a mom you could visit if you were in town even if your friend wasn't there because you knew she'd be so happy to see you.  I can't imagine losing my mom EVER, let alone before she gets a chance to see you get married, have more children & fulfill more of her dreams for you and your dreams for you.  So very sad.

The strangest part is I spent all weekend thinking about my friend.  We don't talk much but she's one of those people who will be there when you need her.  Part of my thinking about her was doing my hair like her this weekend.  I couldn't figure out why she was on my mind like that the rest of the time.  But when I finally went to text her and see what was up and why I was thinking about her like that, I had left my phone in the hotel room & so had Stace.  Then I forgot about it again and I figured everything was okay.  Then it was, but now she needs us.

Yeah. getting that message was surreal. I remember meeting her freshman year... *sigh*

I remember when my BFF's dad died. I was so sad for her and kept thinking it could have been easily my own dad. I made sure I was there for her, even if she just wanted to cry. Even if you can't be there physically, just keep checking on her.

So Sorry. :(
Calling and being there for her however you can will help her. Also just listening.

That's tough and I'm sorry to hear this. I hope both you and she are able to find a measure of comfort in the happy memories you have of her mom.

I came real close to losing my mom recently and that was hard. I can't image what your friend is going through.

Just keep checking on her from time to time.

Loss is hard.

I'm sending her all my love and will be sure to check up on her. I sent her a card letting her know she can call me any time day or night.
