Another Death in the Family

We just received word that Grace's father, my father-in law, died today at about 6:10 p.m. He died just 13 days after my mother.

This means that this month we lost both my mother and my wife's father. Our children just lost two of their four grandparents in a span of just under two weeks. Isaac, at 13, was old enough to get to know them a little bit, but Veronica and Sam, at 2 years 10 months and 10 months, respectively, will never really get to know them.

It's been a hell of a month. Since bad things usually come in threes, it makes me wonder what we're facing next! Maybe it's my turn?
