    • Im sooo sorry Cathie. Are you ok? As for not hearing back...Id be hurt. I would hope they would be there. Its maybe they dont know what to say. But a phone call just to say hi and chat can mean alot. Im here for you and Im sorry for both of your pain. Loss and disappointment. Talk to your  family member...maybe. Im at a loss on this one honey I cant even imagine how if a family member is hurting not being there.
      Where is Niecy she is so good at this lol
      I am soooo not but I am here for you.
      Hugs

    • Not an excuse, but sometimes even family doesnt know how to reach out under those circumstances.  I  hope there are others there for you.  I lost a friend last year very suddenly and unexpected.  It wasn’t just the loss that was difficult (as if that wasnt enough) but it was realizing how mortal those in my life (and myself) are.  I love my friends and I do let them know.

    • Sudden loss is always so painful.  I am so sorry for your loss and yes it will hurt that I did not get a response but in time bring it up in a by the way conversation, maybe they did not know how to respond.  Time heal the wounds and I pray your strength in dealing with this.

    • My condolences for your loss.  As far as you not receiving a response from your sister; it may be she is experiencing problems herself and unable to respond to you. Best solution is to call her and ask if she received the message and see what her response is.  You could guess a thousand reasons and they could be wrong.  So I recommend: ask in a nice way, hold no grudges, hear her out and let it be.  You can drive yourself crazy and its not worth it.

    • Thank you, Ladies. I appreciate you caring about my loss of a friend that added so much to my life for too short a time.  

      I wouldn’t have told my sister about Larry dying if I hadn’t already told her about meeting him and what a sweetheart he was. I’ve met a lot of people since the divorce and it’s nice to socialize and meet new to me people, but sometimes it’s a one time fun and interesting meeting, sometimes a memory we pack with us for a specific reason. Sometimes we meet new friends that feel like old friends, and that was Larry.  

      And I tell people that matter to me this kind of stuff so they know me. What’s the point of “knowing” people if they don’t really know us?  

      Love & Hugs,
      Cathie
