This week has seen:
- my cousin diagnosed with terminal cancer on Tuesday. No prognosis, just 'spend time with your kids, enjoy your family'.
- a really lovely family friend died on Wednesday - of old age, but nonetheless.
- the only dog to ever join our family died yesterday and is missed by three generations.
- we also passed the sixth anniversary of my Dad's death - which my Mom still struggles through, understandably.
So not the easiest of weeks, as you can imagine.
It reminds me a bit of the two year period in which I organised 5 funerals for close family members. It got to the point where the funeral home starting saying 'No way, who is it this time?' whenever I walked in. Trust me, by number five I had it down to a fine art.
Anyway, a sad, sad week. Let's hope it's not to be repeated for a long time.
Happier post to follow.
