This morning we found out that my daughter's friend lost her dad. He died early today. He went in for a gall badder issue on Friday and didn't recover.
Baby girl came home from school and started crying. She said, "What if that was my daddy?" She was sad for her friend and sad that her friend was going to have to move away.
She really wanted to talk and cuddle. She was sad that her friend wasn't going to ever get to see her daddy anymore.
I was a little surprised that the little girl came to school this morning. I am thinking her mom was overwhelmed with everything going on. The little girl didn't cry today in class so I am afraid she is holding it in or doesn't really understand that her dad isn't coming back.
The adults are all at a loss on how to help. It really makes morality real when one of our peers passes. He was only in his 50's. We have given our condolences and offered food and childcare.
Keep this family in your prayers. The little girl just turned 8 a week and a half ago.
