Mr. JB's cousin's husband dropped dead on Sunday afternoon. It is the saddest story. Mr. JB's cousin Ch has suffered with cancer for the past few years. She has even lost her jaw because of it. Thankfully she's in remission. Mr. JB's cousin and her family moved back to be closer to family (they used to live in the same suburb as us), particularly her husband's mother. They hadn't even been in their new house for two weeks.
The only thing we know is that D, who was only 48, walked into the house and dropped dead. He wasn't ill, as far as we know. He left his wife and a 7 year old little boy.
Mr. JB checked out D's FB page and his wife wrote the saddest thing. She said, "You were never supposed to be the one that left."
My heart aches for this young family.
To top it off Ch's sister and sister-in-law are both suffering with cancer.
If you have a moment today please say a prayer. We can't go to the funeral on Friday since I have a meeting that I can't miss and it's also just before a long weekend, but we're going to make the long trek to the visitation after school. I really wish that we didn't have to see Mr. JB's relatives so soon after his uncle's memorial service.
This really puts CD2 into perspective, doesn't it?
