When I heard her voice I knew that I was hearing the sound of splintering glass from a heart that was shattering. She is a very loving and determined lady. She loved and cared for her husband, who fought valiantly and overcame great odds. At times literally jumping from the grave as the grim reaper tried to pull him into the after life.
Their journey together in this life came to an end at 7:00 this morning. At 8:00 she was notified that her only sister had died at the same time several states away. How do you prepare for such a double whammy?
I think not only of my friend and her family, but I think about all the voices crying out in Japan. The roar of breaking hearts sounds thunderous in my ears.
