mom called a while ago to tell me a friend of hers saw a notice in the local paper the other day saying one of my very good friends' (ninnie) mom died last week. sigh. i knew she had cancer, and i knew the prognosis was bad, but it's still always such a shock when it finally happens, y'know?
i'm going to try and locate the notice tomorrow before contacting my friend. damn my awkward work hours. :/
seriously. this is just getting way much. that's the third person connected to a very good friend or family member in barely 2 years to die from cancer, and my aunt's husband was diagnosed last week with a bad prognosis. on top of that there are even more people i wasn't as familiar with but who were close to people i care about that i'm not listing. enough, already.
poor ninnie and her family. ulla was a really, really wonderful woman. she had the most infectious cackling laugh and a really good, silly sense of humour. while i haven't talked to her in quite a while, she remains very vivid to me.
meh. sorry, i really don't mean to post such a bummer of an entry, just... had to put it out there. good night.
