Oh man, I stayed in North Vancouver with my friend and her kids last night -
She got a call from her mom's seniors' home about six thirty this morning that her mom died last night.
I'm watching the kids while she's 'handling arrangements' at the home.
She asked me not to tell the kids the real reason why she wasn't here when they got up.
I think I'm managing to act normal and not like there's something really bad going on.
This is the first death either of them have ever experienced.
. . . oh boy.

Oh, that's so sad. I'm sure she's comforted with the fact that you're there and helping out though.

Thanks. The kids are doing well. They only seem to get wigged out when the adults start sobbing. ::hugs kids:: I think they might have a hard go of it at the funeral this afternoon.
