It doesn't seem possible that we have reached the age where dying parents is not a huge anomaly. It seems that dead parents should still be something that is responded to with great surprise: "Did you know that Joey's mommy is dead?!?! Yeah! Wow. I wonder what he'll do...."
But no, somehow we're into that time where the reaction is more like, "Yeah, Josey's mom is sick too, and last week Tommy's dad passed away."
I still think my parents are going to live forever. (For better or worse.)
Justin is going to live forever.
I am not going to be alone in this world.
