I have been dreading that question for 7 months, and today, it was finally asked.
Lady: Jacqueline, do you have a little sister?
Me: (slight hesitation) Yes, well, I did.
Lady: You did? (jokingly) What, you loose her?
Me: Kinda, she passed away in August.
Lady: Oh my God. I am so sorry. Now I feel like an ass. What happened?
Me: Motorcycle accident
Lady: Your sister is Jennifer? I saw someone wearing a tee shirt the other day that said “R.I.P Jennifer”
We finished the convo about what to get a 7 year old for her birthday.
I am still shaking and feel like I was punched in the chest.
