Even though I\'ve said you won\'t believe it, I bet there will be lots of stories that might even top this one. I went to get my hair cut-the hairdresser knew my son Chris really well-her son and Chris attended school and graduated together and sometimes hung out. It\'s been almost three months since Chris was killed and she asked how I was doing. Then she said,(and I\'m not making this up), \"I know how you feel. My husband bought me a special breed of cat and had it flown in from Tennessee. I only had her three weeks and I came home to find she had a high fever and she died. And just like Chris died at such a young age I feel the same for my cat, she was so young and had her whole life ahead of her.\" There you have it-the death of a cat she had for a grand total of three weeks is equal in her mind to the loss of my 22 year old son. And I think that I\'m the one going crazy!
