WAIT!!!
No, really wait. Not so soon; the weekend can’t be over yet. Monday already? I’m not ready! This week will be weighted down with a pall over the workplace. Vijay’s unexpected death will weigh heavily on everyone’s mind. The calling hours are tonight. Snatched from life like a candle flame is snuffed out, he will no longer be a physical presence at our side.
While the weight of waiting has been lifted from him it has grown a little heavier for those of us still in line.

"THOSE OF US STILL IN LINE" THIS LINE ADDS WEIGHT (NO PUN INTENDED) TO THIS STORY.
Losing someone is a heavy load to carry

Thank you for your kind words you left on my post today.
My heart goes out to you -- life is bittersweet - remember all the good times shared and halved and nothing more.

Hopefully the heaviness of loss on your heart and mind will be lifted with kind and happy thoughts of your friend Vijay.

Writing about it can only be a healing process.....

All the best...

sorry about your loss. Your post made me realise I had written mine as a heavy weight looms over me, and I feel it crashing down.
Funny how reading someone else's words can help you to see inside.

Vijay will be missed dearly. Sorry to hear about your co-worker. The authenticity of the work is sincere and lovingly devoted to a real rather than a character in a fictional work. I have felt this heaviness before; like lead sinking through water, the heartache is truly heavy.

Pretty chilling to think we're all merely standing in line...
Actually, a good take on the impact of a death on work colleagues, a slant not often heard.
