UGH - I haven't stopped crying since yesterday.

I received a message letting me know that the little girl I nannied for 8 years ago passed away - she had special needs & had been declining but it still sucks - I am so sad for her & her family (who are now close friends) I cared for her from the time she was born until she was 2. She was born & died in her home which is exactley what her family wanted.

Adding to that not 15 minutes after I got that message from my mom telling me my Grandma had suffered a massive stroke and isn't expected to make it through the week. She's almost 96 and has brain cancer as well.

ugh, my heart is just breaking........

And to make it all worse I am 1200 miles away from them both.
