How do you handle shocking news about a death?
I just found out somebody that I have only known since January, but had great respect and admiration for, passed away yesterday.
I found out when I called his house and his mother had answered the phone. She did not know who I was, but I guess found my name on one of his folders and then she proceeded to tell me he has passed.
I'm sitting here at my computer feeling numb. My mouth is dry and I am trying very hard to stifle tears from brewing up.
I'm in shock because this is a person I thought I was falling for, but did everything I could to ignore it because I frankly didn't think I was good enough for him, even though he was nothing but kind, l;oving and very respectful toward me.
I don't know people, how do you handle news like this? Especially when it's somebody you just met and were in the slow process of getting to know the person?
I am really not one to talk about my everyday life outside this board. But this is a definite reality in my life and I needed some outlet to get it off my chest.
Thanks for any comments.....
