so it's like this:

for some reason God has decided that my life was far to easy for far too long. GOD: "oh, Ginny, you lived your life sheltered and (cough) spoiled. Now that your getting older and getting a dose of what life is really like I think it's time to start killing 'em off."

My grandad died last night. Yes, my father's father. If that is not the biggest slap in the face. Is it so much to ask to stagger deaths? This will be my 3rd funeral in 8 months. And one of those funerals was MY OWN MOTHER. I can't take this. It's crazy. Nobody else has family members dropping like flies. (*note: I really don't want anybody else to lose family members!) But really, this trend is becoming disturbing. Yes, he was very old. Yes, his wife died in November. Yes, he was probably ready to go to the other side. But my POOR DAD.
Me to GOD: Stop, for the love of you, just stop letting people die. I'm agreeing with you: I am spoiled and a little bit of a baby (stop laughing) but I get your point now and pleeeeease let me get back to living my naive and "nobody ever dies in my family" kind of life. I've stopped saying that and rest assured I will never utter those words again. Retreat! Retreat! Uncle! Anything! to! let! people! I! know!keep!living!..............................................

Goodness, Ginny! I'm sorry- that is really crazy. And, unfortunately, as we age, and invariably, so does everyone else, our elders are going to start to die at what will seem start to seem like an alarming rate. I don't want any part of it. -Camille

I am very sorry for your loss(es). I think pretty soon coffee is going to turn to Colt 45 (or something equally alcholic but less disgusting) They always say bad things happen in threes, so your done (right?) I really hope so.

I think all these terrible life events seem to come at one time. I don't think God has ever heard of spreading the pain. Keep your chin up and you know we'll help you get through it all.
