This seems to be a year where death pops up everywhere and in places you weren't expecting it. I don't even mention it here every time someone dies because after awhile it gets to be almost unbelievable.
I got word of a friend who passed away yesterday and I'm shaken to the core. Another one? REALLY?
It never gets any easier does it? The expectation that some of life's challenges would be like learning math or a new hobby-easier over time-is just wrong. Loss never gets any easier and it never will.
