|It's a sad day for my family!
||[Jan. 17th, 2010|06:35 am]
I awoke this morning at 1:30am out of a dead sleep. Was wide awake and un-able to go back to sleep. Finally at 4:15am I was able to lay down and that is when I got a phone call from my aunt. She told me that my Uncle, Dale, had passed away. :( It was a shock..it was un-expected...he hadn't been feeling well and he went to see his dr. and they told him he needed a stress test because they thought that there may be some blockage...he didn't have the 3,000.00 dollars to pay for it...so they didn't do it...he was on a chess tournament in NH when he awoke having chest pains...he told his friend to call 911, then he collapsed. His friend did CPR until the paramedics came and they couldn't get his heart to re-start...I was in shock...speachless...he couldn't die! Now, who knows what is to become of his business...what's to become of the house that my grandmother owned...which is as much a part of my childhood as my mothers and her sisters and brothers...so much running thru my head...I had to drive down to my mom's and tell her in person...lost it! she was upset over it..then we had to tell my sister...I don't even know how to break it to my niece....she was so close to her uncle! We all loved him a lot...It seems like a cruel cruel joke! My mom started yelling at me that I need to get insurance...That the men in our family die around 50...it's true...they drop like flies....:( I'm so sad! :(|
