Our hearts and prayers go out to his children. In the past year alone they have lost their mother, father and unofficial step-mother. People often speak about when one partner dies, the other dies a short time later from a broken heart. I think this must be the case here.

In other shocking news, Margaret is not coming home for the funeral. Apparently Florida is too far to come from when it is only a sibling that dies. Unless your Stasia. or Shannon (whom I had to talk out of trying to come up, new baby et al…)
