When your best friend’s mother is dying there really isn’t any “right thing” to do or say. As much you keep reaching and grasping for something, anything to take a little pain away.

You basically keep your phone on constantly.

And you cry a little bit and think about how life is so stupid and unfair sometimes.

You try really hard to get her to eat.

Field calls from the other friends wondering what’s going on.

Drink wine.

Don’t make sad eyes!

Continue planning the wedding.

Try to make jokes but not too many jokes.

Take her to the mall.

Resist the urge to buy her everything as if that will somehow help.

Eat frozen yogurt.

What else can you do?
