I am doing okay and you?
That’s—oh, really? 
Why’s that?
Grant?—oh—that’s –
What? Missing!?
I’m…so sorry to hear that
Now that’s—that’s very strange
Yeah, I’ll definably pray for him
Yeah—oh, it’s not a problem
You can talk to me anytime
I’m just—wow—I’m just…shocked!
Of course, of course
You never saw it coming…
No, don’t blame yourself…
Oh, I’m sure he’s alright—just stay positive
No, I’m glad you called
Haven’t heard from you in a while…
I can’t believe it either
Just try and remain calm and—
What? No, stay inside and try to calm down
Hello? —hello? 
Hello? –who was that?
Martha? Are you alright? 
Martha, talk to me…
What’s going on?
