Grief

The knock on the door came at about 2:30 this afternoon. Two officers from the local PD doing a notification for the County Sheriff in Nevada.

My mother passed at 4:16 local time while Lu and I were en route to the hospital. There's a lot to this story. I'm unsure, at this late hour, how much if any I am going to talk about. It is intensely painful and after many hours, way too many miles and a lifetime of tears and sorrow I am simply too wrung out to know my own mind.

I am so tired but will sleep come? I may be away for a while. Again.

May you finally rest in peace Ma.

I know how hard it is, my dad died 7 years ago this very weekend. Maybe these stories of how I dealt with it can help:

I can not find the right words to comfort you. But know that many people care, and are offering their prayers for your comfort and for your Mom's peace.

Drop a line or simply call if there is anything at all I can do.

I know words don't help much at this time, but we went through this last year. You're in my prayers tonight.
