I don't understand why, if you have already experienced one horrible, horrible loss, that you aren't immune to another. I think that you should get a coupon or voucher or something, a free pass to no more bad news or hard times or broken hearts.
I'm sending my love to Catherine, who has become a friend to me and is such a good friend to so many others. Catherine, please be strong, we will all be here for you when you are ready. This week was going to be difficult, and then this. It is unimaginably cruel.
