A friend’s baby died last night. She was fine, and then her heartbeat dropped, and then she died.

We were at the hospital for a few hours, which I am really, really grateful for. I got the meet the baby, be there with the mother and father, and cry with some of my closest friends. Grieving within a community is so much kinder than grieving alone.

I am unsure what to do now. Of course, there is nothing to do. Time will pass, things will happen, it will always be a bit different.

I am very, very sad.
