In The Mourning

Last night my cousin died. Really, he's more like my brother. We grew up together. We did everything together when we were young. He stayed with us for weeks and weeks on end. We were a month apart in age and only half a sentence apart on ways of thinking.

It was tragic. It was sudden.

I feel like I should say something. I feel like I should do something. I feel like I can't breath deep enough or relax all the way. I feel very alone surrounded by people.

I am lost. I am sad.

I pray.

Allie, I am so very sorry to hear about Jerome. I remember you talking about him fondly like he was a brother. Today is a very sad day. I will pray for you and your family. ~Krista
