Will this hellacious summer never end?

Yesterday, we lost Madman's beloved grandfather. The man was the perfect combination of sweet and mischievous. I met him when M and I first became "an item", and I knew then that I was on the right track. Madman is a great deal like his grandfather, both in looks and outlook. Treasures, both of them. Gramp will be sorely missed.

Today, we lost Odetta.
Grief on top of grief. On top of grief.
Too much.

I want my mom back. I want Gramp back. I want my little black Shetland back.
Too much.

Oh, it's like salt in the wound, isn't it? So many empty spots in one's heart all at once. I wish I could make it all better for you, but I can't. So sending some ((((hugs))) to help you through it all.
