What always strikes me about this place is how little we really know about each other's lives beyond the sometimes spectacularly good, bad, or mundane like "stepped in a puddle on the way to the mailbox." Or what Creedence album we like best, which are small parts of our total lives.

I don't know what I'd do if Kari died. Really. I feel like she's as much of me as me. Except for a couple of folks who've met her, you only get me and don't get to see my better half.

I go back to seeing my dad and the mix of frustration and desperation watching my mom succumb to Leukemia.

I hope Alb's got lots of family and friend support in the coming days and weeks.

Dear Garry -

sincerest condolences out of Holland. Wishing you all the strength you need, and all the best in these bitter times. May she rest in peace.

The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.

I don't know what to say, either - it's just horribly awful. I'm sorry, Garry.

Well said, Rita.

I am so sorry for your loss. That is so sad.

So many people on here have had sadness touch their lives. When Garry feels ready, I know BCBers will do all they can to reach out and help.

Much love to Garry and his family.
