More grieving

No, this post is not about Michael Jackson.  
This evening, I lost somebody very close to me.  My oldest and dearest friend and her younger sister lost their mother.  My violin teacher lost his wife.  My parents lost one of their closest friends.  

I've been trying to write this post for a few hours, but to be honest, I'm not even sure what to say.  Lately, it seems as though there has been so much death.  *sigh*

Matt and I will be heading to Michigan on Sunday so that we can be there for the funeral and then sit shiva on Monday.  I am hoping that, after this, we can all get a reprieve from grieving for awhile...it's just too hard.
