The ground under your feet disappears, disintegrates, and you have to somehow keep walking. Keep functioning. While still remembering why you love -- not loved, love -- someone so deeply and fervently.

People who've never met the people in question have cried at hearing this news. I know. It's a loss that a lot of us feel. But that we can't truly, fully comprehend. That we can never completely understand.

You just have to hope that "the peace that passes understanding" is an actual peace. And that such peace can be found in life as well.

And wish that the Internet could be a better hug delivery system.
