The universe is continuing to suck

Inigo is still awesome, he just turned 20 months, and I owe him a post about how awesome he is right now.  But that is not for today.

The news today is not awesome.

A woman took her own life on Thursday night.  I didn’t know her well, but I do know her family very well.  Her brother and I dated for a while, back in the mists of time, and her mother has always been wonderful to me.  My brother and her brother were best friends in high school, and her home was a home away from home fro Adam and I.  Her family has been visited by the death of an older son, years ago, and back then I thought how unfair it was that such good people had to suffer so much pain – and now they are living through the death of a much loved daughter and sibling again.

I am sure that life will be awesome again one day. but for now, the pain and misery is overwhelming.

  1. Oh boy. 2009 has not been a good year so far (I know it’s a sucky year when my funeral suit needs to be dry-cleaned more than once.)

    My thoughts to you and the family.
