Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Indeed, it is that kind of crowd. And I'm part of it.

I went to a wake tonight. One of my cousin's son was walking with his wife and another woman along a sea wall in Gloucester, Massachusetts, when a wave swept him and the other woman into the sea. His wife called 911, but the Coast Guard and local police could only retrieve the bodies. My cousin, of course, is devastated as are her daughters and her son's widow.

I still can't imagine what it is like to have a child die first. None of us expect that.
