Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I could use a hug. Just began my lunch by checking the news and the first headline I see is Jimmy Carter has Melanoma which has spread to the brain. Yesterday would have been my father's 90th birthday so I was already feeling more emotional about his loss than usual, and this news is so similar that I can't get the tears to stop. Flooded with memories of Daddy's last days and feelings of grief and loss almost as intense as in the weeks after he died.

Gotta get a grip in time for the eyes and face to be clear before my next client at 1:00.

Just typing this is helping. So grateful to have somewhere to express this.
