Shock -

My cousin's wife called from Australia.  My cousin died, peacefully, it seems, at his desk, in his chair.  He was 57 years old and has two daughters, one in her last year of high school and one, 24.   He had been feeling unwell, the last week, but they thought it was the flu.  An autopsy will give more information.  In the moment, I am stunned and sickened.

We are a small family.  My mother had a brother, who had two children, Nancy and Greg, and there was my brother and me, and my cousin Lynn.  That's it.    The memories flood. 

I won't be posting for a few days.  The storm comes; we'll make a fire, and dwell within.
