    My mother drowned at a popular quarry outside

    of the city I live in. It was a little over three years ago, but I never really gave myself time to grieve. She was only 35 years old. RIP mom :'(

    So my grandma who raised me died about a week

    ago, and I'm not really upset, I never was really. I guess I kinda saw it coming or something. Anyway it's not hitting me as hard as it is the rest of the family. I'm 16 but right now I feel like I'm kinda everybody's rock.

    My husbands father passed away this morning.
