reggie’s death came as a total surprise

his husband called us in tears just a few weeks ago

blubbering about how he had just..flopped to the ground

when they were leaving the bar after a nightcap or two.

It turned out the cancer had spread to his lungs

and he’d just..stopped breathing.

lu started crying not even a second after the call had ended.

rosa and phil squeezed themselves into the corner and held each other tight.

after a good five minutes of pure sobbing

she turned to jelly in my arms- it was a good thing she’s light.

i held her tight, whispering in her ear that everything was gonna be okay.

but that was a lie, really.

she knew it, too.

the kids inched over once she quieted down and crawled into our laps.

it was then that the mourning period began.
