I hear the message in the cashiers well meant words. Unfortunately we deal with family members of the same mind frame. Almost exactly the same words in fact. My Grandmother is sure that if we could just make it go away, life would be just fine, normal, and acceptable again. She doesn't mean it cruelly. She's just what I call "old school", and has always had a thing about appearances, and keeping up with the society standard. It's how she was raised, and I'm certainly not going to change her now. LOL
I just read between the well meant comments...I know she loves him like everything.
Good vent topic!
