Repose of my BIL, Ronnie, who died unexpectedly this morning
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:27:06 PM »
My brother in law, who was 50, died unexpectedly this morning. Thye're suspecting a congenital brain malformation he didn't know about. He never smoked, jogged 3 times a week, was an avid skier and swimmer. When my sister woke up this morning and tried to wake him he was unresponsive and gasping agonally. I can't believe it. They have 2 teenaged sons who did cpr until the paramedics arrived. My poor sister's in a daze, as are the boys. prayers and good wishes appreciated.

May his memory be eternal!

May his family members be comforted through the descent of His own right hand!

Thank you. I feel helpless because I'm in VA and sister & sons are in Salt Lake City...I can't get out there until sometime tommorow. I keep thinking of her having to sleep in that empty bed after 20+ yrs of marriage. Luckily his brothers and sisters live close by and will be there tonight.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I am sure you more than helpless. You are a real mensch. Your sister and nephews are blessed to have you among their family during this time.

With deepest sympathy!
