Pneumonia. Very sudden onset. Wasn't that old.

I... don't know what to do.

Condolences. Stay strong, and close to those who can help you to do so. It's a reminder to us all that anyone can be taken from us at any moment, so we must make the most of the time we have with them. Best wishes to you and your family.

I've always remembered Patrick Stewart's reaction to Roddenberry's death being the same as that he'd had for his parents, despite being a grown man … "who's going to take care of me?".

The answer is that *you* will. The shock will pass, the hours will get less long, and the pain of loss will be smiles of sweet and bittersweet memories later.

In the meantime, it's just one foot in front of the other.

Thank you all for the kind words.

It's such a surreal experience. So many people calling in, expressing their condolences, asking how we are.

It's so unnerving seeing my stepdad break down in tears so often. The man is normally a rock.

And me... I'm worried. I feel like I should have broken down by now, but I haven't. I managed to shed a few tears yesterday, but nothing like the others. Nothing like how I actually feel.

Funeral's tomorrow. So many people coming in from all over, I don't know how I'm going to face my grandparents. My sister was so brave to volunteer to be the one to call them to tell them what had happened. I held her while she made the call, and could hear my grandmother on the other end.

I think the sound my grandmother made will haunt me the rest of my days. To try to label it a "howl" or a "wail" is to take away from the horror of it.

They say the greatest pain for a parent is to outlive their child.

I believed it before. I know it now.

My grandmother outlived 2 sons including my father, it is a terrible thing.

I send you my sincerest condolences and good wishes in this time of loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss...

Just be there for your family- your sister and you can help your grandmother through this- you're her connection to her daughter now.

And let your family be there for you as well- no one can shoulder it all by themselves.

Always a horrible thing to lose a parent.

My mom was lucky. She was having a stroke, my sister was at home called for an ambulance got her to a hospital. While in the hospital she then suffered an aneurysm. I say she was lucky because she was already in a hospital and an aneurysm is often fatal.

I'm slightly annoyed at Hobbes' rather rude decision to be much more attractive than me though. That's just rude. - PsyLiam, Oct 27, 2005.
