    This woman has probably cried for hours, days on end. Just because tears aren’t rolling down her cheeks and she’s been able to compose herself to give this interview, does not mean she isn’t mourning ffs! Mourning traverses through different phases. I can’t believe how judgemental people are. Imagine people critiscising how you handle grieving of a loved one? SMFH!

      She married for money, her kid was already an adult so not much sympathetic attachment left for him. Nah bro, she’s not hurting, she’s instantly a billionaire.

      ⁠​⁠@Zog Bogbeanare you a mother? If not you can’t speak on a mother’s attachment to her child.

      We heard a different story from the sister of the 19 year old. He didn’t want to go.

    • Patricia Morgan says:

      ​​​@Roxanne M.That was his aunt, rather than sister. Perhaps the mother knows better, or perhaps the son was concealing his concerns from his mother, as she “sacrificed” her seat for him. They all sacrificed more than they could imagine.

    Other than the physical issues that I have going on now, I consider myself as much of a man as anybody, But, this lady is a lot stronger than I would be. Something happen to my daughter, I’d completely lose it. My prayers and condolences to her and to all those family and friends who lost someone on this sub.

    As someone who was very close with my father, he died on Christmas Eve when I was 19, I was in a state of shock. I felt numb. I thought something was wrong with me. A few months later all the emotions hit me at once and it was like I felt everything, unexpectedly. It was like I couldn’t stop crying. The mind does strange things to protect us. Just because she isn’t crying doesn’t mean she isn’t grieving.

    • HAL 9000 says:

      I know exactly what you mean. I have done that every single time someone I love has died. When my grandmother died I didn’t cry until I saw her at the funeral. Everyone thought I was psychotic. I had the biggest mental breakdown of everyone though at the funeral. It’s called going into shock. It’s normal and I’ve come to learn some people just react like that. I feel so sorry for this lady and it makes me angry people are judging her because she’s not in tears.

    • Krisztina H. says:

      Yes, sometimes the person goes into shock and becomes numb, when they experience tragedy. Hopefully this woman has and will have all the support she needs to get through this horrific event!

    I hope she gets help from this, the mother probably has intense surviors guilt. If she reading this, I am sorry for your loss. I hope your family and you can get throught this, especially you. Do not feel guilty, your husband and son would want you to be strong and not want you to feel guilty. They love you still even in death.
