Oh Ms. Mom~
My heart goes out to you. Yes, it does seem like you have had such a HUGE influx of being around you passing on. I am so sorry. I think numbness is a way that protects us, at least temporarily from the shock, deep hurt and pain that exists when such tragic, traumatic and sudden things occur. It will wear off, but now, I think, its protecting you so that you can survive.
Your poor co-worker, she sure has been through an intense amount of grief and loss. I'm sure she needs as many friends as possible right now. Ted Bundy's parents attend our church. I have known them all my life, very nice people. When everything was happening with the murder trial, etc., the church surrounded them with love and support and prayer. I'm sure that helped them somewhat.
