    I’m so sorry LH. Grief is strange, and we all grieve differently. Don’t worry about what that looks like for you, or feel ungrateful because of it. You are processing in your own way and that’s ok <3

    So sorry Lh, loss is always hard but when theres a lot of potential legal issues surrounding that definitely makes things so much more overwhelming. I don't think anyone would fault you for crying

    I am so sorry. ❤

    Echoing the others that you don't sound ungrateful and absolutely no one would fault you for crying at work.

    Can Rooster take your phone and manage texts for you to take some of that weight off your shoulders for right now?

    I’m sorry. I want to second everyone’s comments that you don’t sound ungrateful, just overwhelmed. Which is totally ok. I wish I knew more about the issues you’re facing to help. Sending you so much love right now.

    I'm sorry, LH <3. I don't think you sound ungrateful at all. That all would make me anxious too.

    My cousin just broke everyone's hearts. Tonight was night 6 of 9 of novena for my dad. Basically it's a variation of the rosary every night to pray specifically for the departed.

    After prayer time, people are encouraged to speak. The host drew out my cousin who has been living with my parents, and she broke down hard. She kept apologizing that she's not good with words and didn't want to be a burden and was too emotional a person. Her parents were doing to tut tut chin up routine on their screens. Meanwhile P and I just wanted to hug her and give her space to grieve.

    I know this thread is generally for family and friends but I’m so down about RBG.
    I’m not American but she’d given me so much hope for the world and now she’s gone.
    Her wisdom and strength was inspiring.
    What an incredible woman.

    I saw this news just a few minutes ago. It’s an incredibly devastating loss for humanity, but especially the US. RIP RBG <3

    I cried in the middle of all the crazy at work. My mom texted that she discovered a life insurance policy my dad had taken on himself without telling her like 15yrs ago. She ended by talking about how my dad had loved her and taken care of her from the day they met to even beyond death.

    I don't normally check my texts while so busy, but she and my brother were talking back and forth. From all the shaking in my pocket, I was afraid something had happened to someone. I wasn't prepared for my mom's heart to be laid out on my phone.
