Thanks to everyone for their condolences.

Lady had been diagnosed with bone cancer a year ago, and when they did X-rays to check her abdomen they found masses between her liver and pancreas. While it wasn't a surprise to us that it was her time to go, it was a shock that she went downhill so quickly. She started having serious issues last Friday, and by Tuesday I knew it wasn't going to be long.
Since we've had both types of events I've found that it doesn't matter whether you know or not - you are just not prepared to lose your best friend. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
