I just learned of another elderly relative passing away today. Two in the last week. I hope the old superstition about death coming in 3's doesn't hold true. This second one we learned about by two strange letters. |
The lady's granddaughter wrote to Mom. I'm pretty sure the granddaughter is an adult, but the letter seemed almost to be written by a child. Incomplete sentences, and she couldn't even spell my Mom's first name correctly. The other was type written by a minister. What was strange about the minister's letter was that he seemed to confuse Mom's name with my relative's. Their names aren't even similar, but this minister seemed to think that Mom and this relative had the same first name. Strange.
