Right now, besides being incredibly angry, I mostly feel pain for what her mother is going through. I can't even begin to imagine.
Unfortunately, due to things it's not necessary to go into now, our relationship was nonexistent. It would be inappropriate and obtrusive for me to reach out now and I know she has others around her who will be better support. For me to try would simply be confusing and less than helpful.
But my heart hurts for her more than anything else. So if anyone is the praying type, or you prefer sending good thoughts, whatever works for you ... please send it out to her mother and her family. They are the ones suffering. Thank you.
