My dearest Gal Pal has recently lost both of her parents in the same year. She has step-siblings, however, she was the only child of theirs together. It must be a strange feeling.
It made me think of my own mother (also deceased now) who was 13 years younger than her closest sibling. Her parents and siblings all passed away many years before she did. She also must have felt rather alone in the world. But me, being in my own selfish little world, never realized this concept until just now. So, dearest Gal Pal, in my own small and belated way, just know someone out here hears you.
