The saddest day~
Today has been a nightmarish day for all of us here.
This morning, after I had put my post on the blog here, Charles came in from outside.
He had got a call on his cell phone with word that my nephew had died.
He died in his sleep of a heart attack early this morning, at age 53.
They (Phil and his wife and grandson) had just moved to NC about 3 weeks ago- near his mother and dad.
Phil is the son of my sister Dolores and her husband , Ernest! They lost their other son, Paul, and a granddaughter, just 3 years ago.(together , in a motorcycle accident caused by a drunk driver)
The whole day has seemed like a dream- a nightmare! Arrangements are not yet made but I will be going up and will be gone for 2-3 days. Nothing is for sure yet but my sister Joy and I may be driving up- maybe Tina and Allison too. We can't make plans until we know more. It may be as late as mid-week.
I can't imagine anything worse than what my sister is going through tonight.
When our Phil was a baby, my sis Joy and I were still kids. (I was 12- Joy 9) Our sister Dolores was living with us when this little boy was born. Her husband was serving in the army in Germany. Phil was so very special to us all~ especially to Joy and me!
I just can't grasp the fact that he's gone- as well as his brother.
Sometimes life is just so sad...
I know I will have a restless sleep tonight but I have to try.
This is us (June, Joy, Daddy) with Phil when he was our little baby boy.
