Sudden death hits so very hard. It's different than someone fading slowly. Sudden death hits like a freight train, totally unexpected. There is no way anyone can be prepared for it. I've experienced it twice, unfortunately. The level of despair is difficult to describe.
There is just no way anyone can prepare for it.
The Third Order
Sarah did not leave Maggie’s side for days. She drove Maggie to the funeral home to make arrangements. She was by Maggie’s side at the cemetery. She wrote the first draft of the obituary and contacted the local newspapers to get it published. But most importantly, she stayed by Maggie’s side. She took Maggie on a long walk in the arboretum. She took Maggie on another long walk, this time along the Huron River. There were times of conversation and times of long silence… Sarah became Maggie’s quiet bulwark of strength.
