WTF is going on this Week??

So I get a call from my fiance that her Uncle had to be taken to the hospital around 10:30 last night. At about 10:40 I get a text from her that said he died. I drove up to Edwards to meet her and her family. Poor guy was only 61, he was going to be the photographer for my wedding. I guess it was a massive heart attack. Can this week get any worse??...for those of you who don't go in the weapon's/hunter's corner...see my thread on "Unfortunate Hunting Accident."

Well he had 14 brothers and sisters. We got told of the one brother died (heart attack) at the funeral of the other (liver cancer).

Little confusion in dates. Grandma died in Oct 92, the 2 uncles in Mar 93 (3 days apart). Hard to keep track in this family. Easier on my moms side since she only has 12 brothers and sisters and most of them dont talk to eachother.

Wow, that was an eventful week...Our wedding is June 21st, 2008. The reception location already had to be changed because the first one went bankrupt and out of buisness.

It's going to be a depressing day...One Wake at 1pm, next at 3pm.

I'm sorry to hear that my friend.

It's times like these that should remind us all to TELL THE ONES YOU LOVE, THAT YOU LOVE THEM!

Don't be shy with your feelings...there isn't enough time to keep things in.

Amen, I think this was one of the first times I actually told my dad I love him.

Yesterday was rough, the Wake for my buddy in the hunting accident was extremely emotional...even more so than wakes of friends that died in car wrecks in HS.
