Grief

I don’t feel numb like they say you’ll feel. I feel kind of spent and it’s just the beginning, I know. I’m devastated. Mostly, for my mom and my two step-brothers. Yesterday, we lost a very good man, my stepfather, Tom.

When I think about him, I have to smile. He always “knew” the answer to everything. One time, he was convinced it wasn’t going to rain for at least a week (he was a weather station junkie.). It started raining the same day he announced his prediction, but he just simply said, “That’s not rain, that’s just a sprinkling.”

I loved him a lot. He may not have been a blood relative, but he was a vital part of my family and he made my mother happy. She is lost without him. My heart breaks for her and for my step-brothers as they’ve lost so much more than I have.

I, also, will be telling Alyx today… Well, Frankie probably. I know, Taylor won’t understand, but Alyx… She’ll be six in a few weeks. She’ll know what it means. I dread that.

If you are praying for us, please pray for my mom and my step-brothers. They are the ones that are going to suffer the most through all this. And thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
