Oh, PB. I'm so sorry. I'll echo those who said not to worry about anyone else- others will handle that. Take care of you, and please let us know if we can help in any way.

I heard him this morning being hasty. In and out in and out the front door, dragging the garbage out to the curb, etc.

His office is 6 miles away. I didn't hear the sirens but my neighbors did this morning. The sirens carry more sound waves when there is water in the air.

I just want your company here. It's comforting.

It's weird seeing my personal Facebook take off with people I don't know tagging him with"RIP" in their status feeds.

Oh no pinto...I dont even know what to say. My heart hurts for you. Dont worry about calling people. News travels fast. Let people know what
you need (company, alone time, conversation or no conversation, etc). Please take care of yourself. Share if and when you feel like it. There is
a lot of compassion on Pricescope. I hope you can feel it.

Oh Pintobean, I'm glad you are finding some small measure of comfort here. How utterly unreal all this must be for you. Don't be afraid to reach out to others if you feel you need to. I'm a little worried for you. Do you think you might need medical attention? I'm hoping family members can come stay with you. Please take care of yourself, you are going through a traumatic experience.

Pintobean, this is such sad news, I'm very sorry for your loss. Words always fall short in a situation like this but I hope you can feel some comfort from the support of everyone here.

Wiser folk than I have already posted so I can only echo their thoughts and advice. Just do what you need to do to get through - there is no right and wrong way to deal with this, only what you feel able to do.

The police may have someone you can talk to, to explain any processes they might need to go through and to offer guidance and support. There may also be bereavement counselling and advice services you can call - don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it (and even if you think you don't at that exact moment).

I'm sending you strong thoughts in the hope it helps even just a little bit, and we're all here for you if you need us.

OH Dear PintoBean,
Heartfelt condolences. It is perfectly OK for you to deal however you must. I lost my husband in Sept. and really didn't get out of bed or leave my apartment for 3 days. My sons did all the arranging and notifying people. Our family and friends are quick contact so everyone knew right away and I did share it publicly on my FB page that evening. But then I hid from the world. I still have days I want to hide, even today, I was overcome by grief. There is no expiration on grief and no one should put their own expectations on you. Do let people love on you when you are up to it. Prayers of comfort and peace for you.

Dear PintoBean,
I am so sorry for all that today is flinging at you. My deepest condolences. I hope people that are not your direct family or your husband's will step off and respect your shock. I hate social media for this.
I hope they get that they need to leave you to your grief and to the realization that is yours to manage. You can do whatever feel right right now. If people get offended, something needs to be readjusted for them. Take your time. Sending love and prayers. Know that you are in our heart and this is a safe place to vent anything.

Oh my God, Pinto, Sweetheart, what a horrible shock and devastating news!

As Matata and others have said, you are probably in shock.

I'm glad your neighbours are with you. Is your Mom coming over? You need to let people look after you. Let others make calls for you. If your work hasn't been informed, ask someone to phone them on your behalf.

I just want to fly there and hug you.

We're here for you, Sweetie. Tell us what you need or want. We truly care about you.

Sending hugs, love, and prayers for strength and comfort.

Pinto, Sweetie, I forgot to add that its OK to say to someone "I don't know what to do."

Let others be your strength and help guide you through what needs to be done.

My thoughts are with you, and I'll be watching this thread for anything you might wish to share or ask about - not just today or the next few days, but the weeks and months to come.

Big Hugs, Pinto. We're here for you.

PB sweetheart, I am thinking of you and sending you more hugs and love. Just sent you another text and wanted to add for you to please take care of yourself and don't worry about anyone else right now. One day at a time one hour at a time one minute at a time. As others have said - you are not alone. (((HUGS))).

Wow so sorry to hear that.

I'm sure nobody will be offended by anything you do right now. People will understand if it takes you time to tell them.

Virtual hugs and I wish I knew you so they could be real.
