Recently learned of 3 people I care about all being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I guess i have had anticipatory  grief for the past month, Thinking about good times in the past with these people and recognizing that this is just the beginning of losing family and friends, as we are all over 60. I am sending messages of support to them and those closest to them. I moved 10 hours away so I may not be able to go back for the services or there may not be any services when they all die--but it is coming in the future and I am not sure how to get support for anyone.
