Sad News...  
I just got a call from one of my oldest friends. Her husband died last week.

S sounded very calm, but it was all I could do not to burst into tears on her. Her husband was a very sweet man, but unfortunately he had a very strange disease that numerous organ transplants could not fix. They were married for almost 10 years. She's now left to raise their 3 1/2 year old twin daughters on her own.

While every loss involves a grieving process, I cannot help but feel that mine is miniscule in comparison. I wish I could do something for her, but she's in Orlando and I'm here.
I feel: sadsad

Oh, I am sorry to hear this. It's one of my worst fears -- my husband dying and leaving me alone to raise our children. It's not that I couldn't do it, it's just that fathers and partners are so important. Plus he's my best friend and I would miss him . . . god, so fucking much.

What a tremendous loss.

I know... I don't think you can care about someone and not have that fear. I wish that I could be there for her, but I did tell her that she could call me anytime she needed to. I have a feeling that she's okay now because she has a lot of support from family and friends, but in a month or so when people start getting back to their normal lives it may be harder for her. I'm going to make sure that even if she doesn't call me, I call her to check in. Hopefully the little bit of support I can give by phone will be something.

That's definitely a good thing to do, no matter how little you feel you can help. You're a good friend.
