Well, we knew it was coming soon, but it's always sad. My best friend's dad passed away yesterday morning in hospital. He's only been there 2 1/2 weeks. I only found out tonight when she phoned me from her hotel, and the cremation, service and burial had already taken place today, with only her, her brother and an uncle present. I would've been there, but I didn't even know. Anyway, they are on their way back to Toronto in the morning, and now that her dad is not here to visit , she says she will not be back. I guess I'll have to visit her in Toronto, or halfway at another friend of ours. The other friend just found out her dad has lung and liver cancer, so she will be going through the same thing soon. I just feel bad for everybody right now...

Wow! That all just seems so fast. Give her time. Montreal is such a great city I'm sure that it will pull her back at some point for a visit. Plus, she has a wonderful friend that lives there. She is exhausted and needs a little healing time right now.

Sorry to hear about your other friend.

So sorry to hear that, Donna. Evden when we know death is coming, it's so difficult to experience.

It's too much at once. I hope you can have time to catch a deep breath before the next crisis with your other friend comes along. You are such a caring person, donna, that all the energy is just zapped out of you when you are nurturing somebody else.
Montreal IS a great city, as we both know, and eventually your friend will return, but I venture to guess that it will be quite awhile from now.

Take care. Lynne
