For sale by owner

Called about some property for sale. For a friend.
Got all the details and then given a price. Then met him out there. I’m told just make an offer if not happy with the price, I just want it gone. along with the story why he is selling it. They’re son stationed in Georgia. This was their halfway stopping point with the camper.
Then our son got deployed Iraq.
He come home in a body bag.
Then he said with tears running down his face. It is true you can die of a broken heart. My wife perfectly healthy woman died 9 months later of a broken heart.
I’m not good in situations like that all I knew to say was man I’m so so sorry.
My friend got the property for about a third of what it should have been.

I am fragile. Not like a flower. But like a bomb.
