Today I'm reminded of a poem

Today we received a phone call from my mother-in-law saying that her sister had died this morning. She had only been sick for about 2 weeks, or at least we had only known for that amount of time. She had colon cancer that had spread and there was really nothing that could be done about it at that point. She was a very nice woman and we will miss her. But upon hearing the news my husband did not cry and was more concerned about how his mother was taking the news. It reminded me of a poem by Randall Jarrell called "Losses"
