In the blink of an eye......

By the time I got there, she no longer knew who I was. No time to connect one last time. Did she hear/understand anything I said to her? It spread so fast to her meninges that she lost all capabilities. I know she wasn't suffering, but, was she terrified in there? Three weeks later she was gone. 

A friend of mine said her whole universe shifted when she lost her older sister. It took her an entire year to come to grips with the loss. Life  doesn't seem as comfortable or enjoyable as it was a few weeks ago. The "End Game" is not as attractive nor as safe.
