My friend's mom just passed away. It seems that cancer can either be slow and painful or it can come on quick and take someone before you realize they're leaving. I'm at a loss for words as to what I can say. I can compare and empathize, but I think all that helps is someone who listens and holds and cries with you. And majorly listens. I hope Sarah has that. If she doesn't, Sarah, I'm here. Death is never easy. And it's never the same. No one but you and your family will have the same experience. Hold onto that. Don't worry about being strong for them. You all need to be weak together. It's how you'll all get stronger. Otherwise, it'll bite you in the butt.
