My fiance's mom died on the morning of march 15th. It was supposed to be my first day of classes back from spring break, and he was on his way over to drive me to the train when we got that phone call from his dad. Then he asked me if I'd stay with him today, and I said sure, of course. We turned back, went to the hospice house where she died, said our goodbyes and then left. I'd never seen a dead body before that day, it was very strange. And the rest of the day, well, he was sad I mean everybody was sad...but they all seemed to somewhat easily be able to progress with their lives and just deal with the situation. Is this because we all already knew that she was going to die for the past 4 months, or is that how death is in general? You cry a bit and then move on as if nothing happened? If that was my mother, I don't think I'd be anything less than hysterical for quite a while. I mean, I don't know. It just seems odd. She's not here anymore and people are acting pretty normal.
