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.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
