Brief update

So anyway, the father of a very close friend of mine passed away - he was found yesterday morning, although we believe it happened Saturday night or Sunday morning. Unfortunately, my friend was the one who found him. Wow, what an awful thing to have experienced.

I spent yesterday evening and all day today helping out, cleaning up the house, arranging details, driving places, etc. Also just trying to be supportive, be available. It's been a hard and sad couple of days for me, but I know it's nothing compared to what my friend is going through.

Reminds me vividly of all that happened when S died. At least I can hopefully make this a little easier on my friend, since I know some of the trauma and difficulties I went though then. I know what are the hard things to do, and I know how much easier it is for somebody less intimately involved to take care of them, so I'm stepping in and doing as much of that as possible.

Also spending a lot of time praying for all involved, and a lot of time hugging when I can't think of anything else to say.
