Life Changing...

I was ready to leave for my friends house on Sat. morning when I got a call from her. Heather was calling to tell me that Benny, a High School friend of ours passed away. News like this certainly puts the problems and issues you have in perspective.
My friend Jen was married to Benny, Chris and I attended their wedding when I was preg. with Tatum. Last Saturday I was unable to attend her baby shower but sent a gift with my Mom. Jen and Benny's first baby is due on my birthday, I am so sad for her and her family. I have no idea what she must be going through. I know that my friend Jen is a very strong woman but no one should ever have to go through something like this and at 8m preg I have no clue how she is holding it together, Most definitely a life suck big time moment.
This is my 5 funeral since I became preg with Tatum and only Nana was an older person. I have attended more funerals in the last 2.5 yrs then some in a lifetime.

Its a very confronting feeling when someone dies unexpectedly - it reminds us of lifes fragility.
I have only been to one funeral, and that was of an old high school friend. I am sorry that you have had so much tragedy around you in such a short amount of time, and i hope it is the last for a very long time.

My thoughts are with you and Jen. It really is one of those moments when life just "sucks" and there is no other way to explain it.
