    When You Think Like I

    Thanks Mom

    I just got an email from my mother that her boyfriend's brother is about to die. What does she want me to do about it? I guess the logical thing would be to comfort her but when my best friend died a few months ago all she said was 'I didn't know he was that sick.' Didn't pass on...
