not sure when exactly my wife was not able to fill me in on details yet with everything that happens in a time like this , but her eldest brother a few years my junior passed , if she was not working in a situation that wont allow her to come home right now i suspect i might know more but ....it was a difficult way to end the day , 

i am still trying to process this so forgive the sketchiness , im a bit in the dark at this point , they will be breaking the news to her mother tomorrow , ill be in support as needed , this was sudden and unexpected , not the mothers day i would have wished in any way for her ,  understand its never a good time - i only wonder at gods way of presenting at the worst time possible , we have already lost my wifes  youngest brother to a TBI and a daughter that cut him off from the family , not sure how much grief her mother needed in her life - she is a good woman that devoted her life to others , she has been devout all her life , she was a pastor to those in hospice prior to her retirement years , not sure how this may effect her and her waining years , ive thought we might be dealing with her very soon , 

i cant say how hard this is to get old and having funerals becoming so common in my close family group , we have two weddings in early june , and now a funeral , im really getting a bit worn by all this , 

thankful fo any prayers and sorry to burden , but i had to at least get this out there to those that might expect the regular me here ,

A Square, I’m very sorry for your loss.  You and your wife will be in our prayers.  Your mother in law sounds like a great woman, just doesn’t seem right she should lose a son.

thank you all , ive still to hear from my wife on how the disclosure went , im hoping it went well considering , she is in a very delicate state these days with loss of communication with her youngest after his TBI a few years back , also in the early stages of the aging mental loss , im very much appreciative of the prayers and thoughts , sympathies and wishes , i am waiting on the family to tell me what they will be doing at this point , there remain three of them that will be deciding the next course of events - i will be where im asked to be doing whatever requested to do , 

there are a lot of thoughts in my head but im not the one to step into this till im told as its my wifes family , i will go with her wishes , im still digesting the fact that this has happened so unexpectedly , and right before a planned family get together set for saturday , 

it reminds me that life & death happen while we are making plans , 
there are some things i need to get in order real soon ,
