My Neighbour


Recommended Posts

My neighbor Suzanne connected with me when my husband died. She came over within days of Michael's death as she saw the emergency vehicles in the cul-de-sac and new something happened. We aren't close and only chatted briefly over the years, as our lives are different. She's busy raising 2 boys, I'm an empty nester.

Just moments ago another neighbor came to my door to let me know Suzanne's husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this summer and now has days to live. I had know idea as they were on vacation the last few months to have one last summer together. I feel like I'm in mild shock, not a paralyzing shock that hit me when Michael died, but I feel it. It's also a bit of a trigger *sigh* I just hope I can support her, even if that just mean to be a listening ear.

I've no doubt you will be a great listening ear.

Understood.

I saw lots of cars parked in my cul-de-sac late last night so kind of knew something was happening. 

My neighbour's husband passed away last night. It brings back my early moments of shock and grief.

I am so sorry.  So horrible for his widow.
