I'm Tired of Bad News

Our very dear friend Superagentfred just called to say his lover died this afternoon. We're off to Baltimore tomorrow, Saturday, just to offer our support, although that seems so little to do. Superagentfred was immensely helpful while R Man was in the hospital and I wish I could return the favor more actively than just turning up and saying how sorry I am now. His lover had been terribly sick, lymphoma, pancreatitis, heart problems all within the last year, but this is still shockingly unexpected. We'll be back on New Year's.


  1. Oh no. I'm so sorry.
    Please express my condolences. I'm keeping him in my prayers.

  2. "...just to offer our support, although that seems so little to do."

    Showing up and showing that you care is the best, most important thing you can do now. At times like this, just knowing there are lots of people who do care about you can help hold you up. Sorry for your friend's loss, and through him, yours.

    you and R. man must be so worn out right now. Take it easy on yourselves.

  3. As usual, thank you all so much. On to Baltimore.

  4. for the love of christ - when it rains, it pours

  5. Being able to be with your friend is immensely helpful - everyone will benefit.

  6. sorry to hear about your friend. hopefully 2008 will bring better days to look forward to.

  7. Peener I was so sorry to hear this sad news on top of everything you and R. man have had to cope with of late. A big hug from down under.


In Which We Go Backwards
