A friend’s sister in law passed away from cancer so we donated money to her charity of choice honoring her. A week later the widow ( my friend’s brother) had a massive stroke so we (mike & I) had out friends over for dinner to cheer them up and distract them.
Another friend’s father had a stroke last weekend so we (mike and I)offered to watch their son whenever they need us to as it’s a lot for a 6 year old to handle hearing/seeing his grandfather paralyzed.
Today someone I work with left work almost immediately bc her husband suffered a heart attack. I texted her a couple times just so that she knows people are thinking of them.
I remember how much it meant to Tara when friends gave her gifts, and more importantly caring words and quality time after each of her surgeries and how good it made me feel to be with her. I hope I helped my friends who are going through hard times have a little bit of an easier time.
