And Life Isn't Fair

C died today. She had lung cancer. C was the mother of one of the girls in K's Brownie troop. I just told K and both of us have been crying together.

C went into the hospital right before Christmas, ended up in a nursing home for awhile and spent the last few days of her life at her brother's house, with Hospice and her family. I am really struggling to make any sense of why C had to pass so soon. I had not known her for very long, but she made an imprint on my life. And I cannot explain it to K in any kind of sufficient way. It is so not fair. It is not even in the same universe as fair.

There is no sense. There is no why. Sometimes things are just unfair. Sometimes they just suck. This is one of those times. It's what we do to get through them that brings meaning.

I'm so sorry, hon.

I'm so sorry. Even having experienced loss in my own life, I still don't know what to say when it happens to someone else. Lots of hugs for C's daughter, K, and yourself.
