I'm so sorry, Michy. That's very tragic and sad. Horrible news for you. Thinking of you.

Thanks, everyone. I was feeling kind of detached from it, until I called my aunt a while ago (she and I are fairly close). That really brought it home to me. I wish I didn't live so far away (6 hours), she is at home alone while my uncle is out making the arrangements, and I really think she needs someone with her right now.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Michy. It's tough to deal with a sudden death at any time, but dealing with it from a distance is rough. Warm and healing thoughts to you and your family.

Thank you. I have found out a few details, and it was terribly tragic. For some unknown reason, my cousin veered over into oncoming traffic and had a head-on with a semi. I'm wondering if he had a stroke or heart attack that caused him to lose control of his car, but it's just a guess.

I just wish I lived closer so I could be with my aunt -- my heart goes out to her more than anybody. Most of the time I am content to live at a distance from my family :o but for once I wish I were closer.

I'm sorry for your loss, Michy. I lost one of my cousins a few months ago, and I am still devastated by the loss. My sympathies.
