     I’m sorry to bother you guys again, but I really don’t know who else to turn to at the moment.

    I just found out today that a friend of mine and my family’s, who I’ve known for the past ten years, has advanced cancer.  No one expects her to live very long.  She’s already battled it at least once before, but it wasn’t this advanced.

   I don’t know what to do.  I feel so helpless.  I’m literally a continent away, and I can’t talk to her or comfort her or anything.  I remember her only a few months ago, and she was so cheerful and happy, this breaks my heart.  She’s always been my mentor, I could talk to her about hopes and fears I didn’t tell my own parents.  She’s sweet, wonderful, contributed so much.  So full of life. 

   I’m hoping I’ll be able to talk to her.  But I can’t accept the fact that I’ll never see her again.  But let’s face it, I doubt I’ll accept it at any point in time.  But I truly wish I could be there to comfort her and ease the pain.  She deserves that much at least.

   There’s so many things I want to say, so many meetings that we’ll never have.  I wish now we’d gone out to lunch more, that was one of our favorite things.  We could talk about everything, and often did.

  Best wishes, Carol.  I’ll be praying for you.
