I do my best. Except with this thread i shouldn't have started, but it is here. I apologyse if my words were not the best chosen ones.I've said words of comfort as I am able, when I am able. We've had a bunch of deaths, recently. In the extended family, an in-law a year ago and an uncle a few weeks back. Another uncle died yesterday, unexpectedly, but fortunately my wife and MIL got to see him a few weeks ago. Not a recent death, but a few weeks back there was a bit of closure for an extended family niece who'd been missing in Alaska for two years. They caught the alleged perp, now charged with kidnapping, torture, murder, tampering with evidence. It was random and she just happened to be walking down the sidewalk.
We come. We go. Let's be good to ourselves and each other while we're here.
We are there to take care of each others, even this old foreign lady who asked me to buy her chicken thighs and then pointed to me for the whole chicken which cost the price of a pack of camels, the smokes not the animal. I sort of resented her for doing that, but if you have got to do it, you are in a pretty bad place. I hope someone will get me a chicken if i become homeless.
