That was shocking. I can't imagine people saying something similar for friends, or siblings, or kids, or any person you can have several of. And what is that supposed to mean, that if one dies I won't be sad because I have someone left? Then if your mom dies should you be okay because you have your dad left?

I got so confused, because that post didn't even read like it was supposed to be aggressive.
I will often joke when I'm trying to understand something new or very foreign ... I like to hope I have more sense than this though.

That said, wow ... How very hurtful.
