Gorilla Tears

Having a rough time as of late. Our family can't have good without bad rearing it's ugly head. Too much to mention, too depressing, and no matter how bad you think you have it, someone else is dealing with much worse crap.

So given my state of mind, when I read about the wake they had for Babs the Gorilla at the Brookfield Zoo, I bawled my eyes out...

"Babs' 9-year-old daughter, Bana, was the first to approach the body, followed by Babs' mother, Alpha, 43. Bana sat down, held Babs' hand and stroked her mother's stomach. Then she sat down and laid her head on Babs' arm."


Waaaahhhhhh!!!

Awwww Tina, hate to hear that you're having a rough patch. I'll keep you in my thoughts...

As for Babs, something about zoo gorillas makes me incredibly sad. I remember tearing up while reading an article on the death of Willie B (the Atlanta Zoo's most famous resident).

Take care of yourself and hang in there...
