The Day He Died (Woman Mourning David Bowie)

When I heard David Bowie had died, I was in shock. Reality shattered. Time was moving like molasses. It was similar to the feeling that came over me when I heard my father passed away a couple of years ago. I always knew Bowie's death would hit me hard, but I never imagined it would feel like losing family. He really meant that much to me.
