The Village Is Grieving

I belong to a couple of "villages," very close friends. One is my writing friends, RMFW people.

The other is older by many years, the DASFA (Denver Area Science Fiction Assn) group as a basis with most of us doing improv and always doing Sunday Brunch. One member, Richard, is dying of brain cancer.

It has been a huge shock to the whole village. The epicenter of the village is Rose and she has known Richard since high school, and his beloved spouse for longer, so the center is hit. This village has one child who is eight. She is Richard's daughter.

The village has rallied in support, and we all have been going through the stages of grief -- denial, bargaining, acceptance. We meet together weekly and for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and we have a loop set up to share.

But it is hard for all of us. I try to see Richard once a week. We support Richard and his family and each other.

So my moods are going to be up and down on the blog.

Blessings. And may happiness grace you.

Oy Robin! You really have been hit hard this year. First with your co-worker and now this.


Always the heartache is amplified at the holidays.

I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.
