    I'm just numb right now. I have to call a ton of people right now and I don't even know how to start.

    My friend that I've known since I was 2 died of a heart attack last night. She has 6 boys from the ages of 17 to 6. She lived next door to me. They were getting ready to move and she was just packing boxes yesterday.

    Oh, Loth. How horrible. Six boys??? Yikes. Is there a husband around? What a good friend you are to handle the hard parts now. I'm so sorry.

    yes, she was married. Gosh, I was in her wedding. I'm going to take up a collection from friends for the boys. They were losing their house and that's why they were moving. I'm just sick over this. My hands are shaking. I haven't even called husband yet, because I know I will just break down. I don't want the kids to see me balling again. I've had so much of that with my other friends over the last couple of weeks.

    Loth! I'm so sorry that this happened! After everything with the others, who would have thought that this would have come to pass.

    There only thing to say that's positive in a situation like this is that although a sudden death is brutal for those left behind, it truly is a blessing for the person that died. No pain, no suffering, just done.

    I pray that your memories can help you through such an awful time, and God Bless the family left behind.

    I'm sorry,
