N's Brother died last night, and there is both sorrow and relief for N and his sister. Grief because he will not be around to lend his humor and insight with us, and relief that he passed quietly and with no pain, after so long. DH cannot go to KY without an 8 hour drive, but knows his back will take only so much, even sitting while DS drives. To fly takes even longer, as the routes are anything but straight forward; for example, there are 4 plane changes. DH turned 70 last month, and feels especially sad that his brother didn't make it that far.
This is a substitute for my bumper sticker for the day, as I am dieting and not getting anywhere. I see my GP doctor next week.
