my dad's mother. her husband died on dad's birthday, too. *sigh*

luckily, dad was with my sister's fiance's parents on christmas day - they're very warm and welcoming and lovely, and they looked after him very well. I'm so glad we have a family connection with them.

funeral is going to be the 18th. no more fretting over the decision whether or not to go - i'll be in hospital.

Oh Limer. It's good your dad was with them.
And glad you don't have to fret. x

I just read that TheatreGeek. And now I'm crying.

Do you know who was with him? Did Mr Neil get back in time to see him?

Lorraine is re-homing her kitty Lear, so I guess she wasn't.

I'm so sad. I hope he didn't suffer.

I came in just to make sure this was posted. This is a bigger deal than I think people realize.

Yeah. Swartz was about as deserving of labels like 'genius' and 'hero' as anyone from the past few years. He invented one of the core technologies on which the modern internet depends at the age of 14.

they were knuckleheads like their parents but i still remember the little boys i used to take to dinners when i'd visit chicago. i remember when it was a treat for them to see me.

That's just awful (and especially dreadful for his twin, I can imagine).

Sorry for the confusion. It was my buddy's two nephews, 22 year old twins, who died. It is sad, a huge shock. Sudden, unexpected and still a lot of questions. The article I linked makes it sound like the woman driving had to be flying down State Street.

My best cat in the world died last month. He died from rat poison according to the vet. Quark the cat was 9 years old. He used the toilet without being trained to do so. He liked to swim. He opened cabinet doors standing on his hind legs like a human. He was friends with many neighbors. Even the mail man grieves. He was the smartest cat I ever had. He was more of a fur person than a cat.

That is heartbreaking news, my condolences.

So sorry to hear this, Jeep. In our prayers.

My dad's dad. Two days ago.
His wife (not my dad's mum) found him, blue, in their basement. Unknown cause of death as of yet.

I did not think he'd be my first grandparent to die - we've worried so long about my mum's mum, my mum's dad, my dad's mum even. But never him. He has always been so active and healthy.

I don't really know what to feel. It's odd. We weren't really close but he did do some sweet things when I was younger - he taught me to ski, including fitting me out with full skiing gear for 4-5 years in a row.

But as my dad said when he told me what had happened, my granddad was a selfish, self-centered, rather distant person. Benevolent and genial, but definitely not involved.

So. Yeah.

I feel odd and don't know how to process really.
