Condolences To Rio And Family
“I never know what to say at a time like this,” Bernie says.
“Me either,” says Spence. “You can say they’ll all be together again one day, or the departed one is in a better place, but lots of people don’t believe that.”
“And lots of people who say they believe it actually don’t, not deep down,” says Admin.
“So what’s the answer?” says Bernie. They pass the bourbon around.
“‘Sorry for your loss’ sounds so lame,” Spence says.
“It’s not lame,” Admin says. “There’s acknowledgment of loss, and you’re sharing, if in a much smaller way, the feeling. It’s always appreciated and remembered – don’t forget the consciousness of the bereaved is often elevated. They’re so painfully aware of how it feels to be alive.”
“Okay then,” Bernie says. “Sorry for your loss it is.”
They clink glasses. “But people do live on in memory,” Spence says.
“That’s something, at least,” says Admin.
“Here’s to memory.”
