12. My dear bertha...
You're in shock, and that is entirely normal...

It is way too soon for you to have absorbed this awful, abrupt news...

You will heal in your own time, in your own way...

After a bit, a bereavement group might be just the ticket to help you...

Until then, we're sure as heck here for you...
