74. This was not your call, Beth. Have you no sense of respect?
You were told not to post about the tragic news regarding my dear friend Trouble. She has a daughter who is devastated and grieving the premature loss of her beloved mother. As I'm sure you can imagine, it was and still is quite a shock to all of us who REALLY knew and loved her. I know factually that you haven't communicated with her in years. Many years. I'd like to say that I'm surprised that you completely disregarded another friend's request to keep this horrible news absolutely private. Unfortunately, I am not.

A family's right to privacy should be honored and respected. Considering I was the person of contact (spoke w/husband on Thanksgiving) regarding this horrible tragedy and spoke intimately with Trouble's family members, it's hard for me stomach such blatant disregard for much needed privacy and healing. I will do all I can to protect her daughter's grieving process. Trouble wouldn't have it any other way. I knew her well. She was a guest in my home many times. Her daughter, father, son-in-law and grandbaby accompanied her on a few of those visits. They are wonderful people. They knew Trouble's heart. I knew Trouble's heart. She would not have wanted this. Not here. Not now.

It's Christmas. Please respect the memory of Trouble by allowing her daughter the space and dignity to grieve as she wishes.

No means no.
