    In complete shock...

    At work, reading through stuff that I might need, and I come across a church service 'In memory of'.. I thought, this is a small place, I haven't heard of anyone dying.. and then I read the name and my stomach dropped out.

    I was friends with two girls, one of whom I broke the friendship with for personal reasons, and the other I keep in touch with despite her working on the other side of the country.

    Their dad.

    He wasn't old, maybe late 50's... fit as a fiddle... and I can barely even believe this. I'm going to leave a message under their door at lunch, I doubt very much they want a phonecall right now.. in so much shock. I don't know how it happened, but hopefully will be able to contact the girls and express condolences.. sad day this end :(

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you get to talk to them soon.

    My best friend's uncle was taken off life support a few hours ago and didn't make it, so I feel your pain.

    Lots of hugs to you.

    My condolences.

    I believe that even the girls wouldn't be that receptive just now, they'll appreciate it if you contact them.

    My condolences, DD!

    I like to remind myself that anyone can go at any time (including our beloved animals), & in that way, keep the surprise factor to a minimum; a good way to do this is to just keep up with the endless unexpected deaths, both human & animal, in the news. I do this for myself, in my own life; I look at the daily unexpected deaths to remind myself how it can happen to anyone at any time. A few recent incidents: the Italian cruise liner overturned, & the young female Olympian skiier (specialized sport, am not familiar with it) who had an accident during practice & died in hospital. Then, of course, is the recent discovery of the 17-yr-old girl's corpse at Sandringham, the Queen's residence, when she & family were there for the Holidays!

    I say this to prepare folks/minimize the shock, in a spirit of helpfulness.

    Thanks Northern.
    I've been lucky enough not to have to deal with the death of someone I really know before.. I don't know what to say to help or do... being there is as much as I know what to do.. feels like it should be auto pilto though!

    No one knows what to do or say, just a hug and I'm sorry goes a long way
