My BM’s infant nephew passed away this weekend and my heart is broken for her. She never got the chance to meet him. She’s coming here on wednesday and I’m transporting her from the airport to her brother’s home and have offered to attend the funeral if she would like me to – I don’t know her family.
The whole thing is hitting me a lot harder than I would have thought. Has anyone else ever dealt with something similar. I feel like if I try and explain my emotional funk/bad mood today it won’t make sense to people.

Yes, I completely understand. I had a coworker whose daugher committed suicide. I was in tears the rest of the day after I found out. It’s an awful situation and normal to feel sad for your friend and her family. Just get over it before Wednesday so you can fully be there for her to lean on if need be!

@MsGinkgo: Aw, that’s terrible! I’m so sorry for your friend and her family. It’s totally normal for this to hit you hard, too. It’s an awful situation and it’s going on in the life of someone you know and care about.
My best friend’s young nephew drowned about 7 years ago, I had never met him but I was just sick about it. Tearing up just thinking about it now.
I think it’s awesome that you offered to attend the funeral to support your friend 🙂
