My former boss (last year’s boss) and I have been trying to connect for about three weeks. Tonight she sent a note; he husband has been diagnosed with late stage cancer. She will try to go through this on her own, that is her way. It is a time to marshall any resource available. Especially your girlfriends. We will clean her house and take food for her son. And cry with her. And then make her laugh. There is no reason to do this alone.
