[Comments] (5) Death be not proud: I spent all last weekend making sure that my mother in law will have the funeral she wishes. Then today I was informed that my Uncle David passed away. He was diagnosed with cancer about 10 months ago (while we were on our criuse). Since Susie and I joined in matrimony two and a half years ago, five loved ones in our families have passed away.

I worry about my grandmother. David was her favorite son. Why is it some are taken so quickly after falling ill, while others (my father and mother-in-law) are allowed to linger, yet suffer?

I should probably end this on a happy note. Hmm. Well, Gretel was relocated to a happier home today. Does that count?

Who did Gretel go to?

Oops, J(ohn) comes before R(achel). I now know Don has her.

Actually Don took her to one of his farmer friends

Mom called to let us know that Uncle Steve (Grandma's brother-in-law) died. He has been very ill and had Alzheimer's for a long time.
