Phone Calls

I wonder… how long it will be before I stop receiving phone calls?

I was having a pretty good day today.  Minor sadness.  Minor residual pain from the 26th.

Then the phone rang.

“Could I speak to Mark please?”

“Ummm… can I ask who’s calling?”

“Its “so and so” from “the company he deals with” ”

“I’m sorry, he passed away in June.”

So much for my good day.

  1. i don’t get the calls but i have been getting holiday cards from people who don’t know that barb is gone. i’ll have to write to them. i’m not looking forward to that step. keep breathing.

  2. For a long time, I got mail addressed to our son, who was killed by a drunk driver in 2002. The day he died, a fellow college student called, asking to speak to Jason about a math problem. When I told him Jason had been killed in a car accident that morning, he thought I was joking…as if I would ever joke about something like that.

    I’m so sorry for your loss…
