A Sudden and Unexpected Loss

BlogHer Spotlight

A former firefighter and nurse experiences an unexpected loss that catches her off guard:

"Death is something that I have a lot of experience with; as an EMT and nurse I've watched people pass away right in front of me. Sometimes it was expected and sometimes it was the last thing in the world that was suppose to happen. All those times, however, it was different. It was my job. I was suppose to either care for them or comfort them as they left this world. This weekend I was touched by a different kind of death...a familiar and tragic kind."
