Sad news for Gemini..
I just had some sad news last night. I found out from my nephew who lives
here in town, that my cousin (who also lives here in town) passed away on
Friday night in his sleep. He was only 40 years old. Mark (my nephew)
called last night to tell me that Ernie's (the cousin who passed away)
sister Liz told him visitation and the funeral will all be held tomorrow
afternoon. She said people can send flowers or make a donation to the Brain
Tumor foundation. I'd love to make a donation (so many people send flowers
that just die anyway), but unfortunately I can't afford to do either. :o(
Ernie had fallen last year and injured his head. He hasn't been the same
since... getting dizzy and falling more often. Apparently he has had a
couple of more falls within the past couple of weeks and was supposed to see
the doctor last Wednesday but couldn't get to his appointment for some
reason. Then this happened... at a friend's house.... he fell asleep in a
chair, and just never woke up again.
I am so saddened by this. Last year I lost another cousin (here in my own
town) who I also hadn't heard about until after the funeral. My nephew and
his lady are really pissed about this, and said from now on whenever they
hear anything about anyone they will let me know right away.
