Dad was putting his daughter to bed when, putting her hands together and closing her eyes, she said "God bless mummy; God bless daddy; God bless grandma; goodbye grandad". The next morning, grandad was about to tuck into a hearty breakfast when he clutched his chest and collapsed. He died before the ambulance arrived.

A few weeks later, the little girl was again saying her prayers when she said "God bless mummy; God bless daddy; goodbye grandma". The next morning, grandma was found dead in bed. Of course, it could have been just a coincidence - or was there something more to it? He decided to keep it to himself rather than upset his wife at what was already a stressful time.

Some months went by without event until one evening she said "God bless mummy; goodbye daddy". Much as he decided to dismiss it from his mind, he nevertheless decide to go into work by public transport rather than risk driving. At the office, he took the stairs rather than the lift. He passed on eating lunch and by the afternoon he couldn't concentrate on any of his work. The journey home was a torture and, by the time he arrived home, he was a bag of nerves. He closed the door behind him and saw his wife standing in the hallway.

"I've had a terrible day" he said, almost crying.

"You think you've had a terrible day?" she replied. "What about me? The milkman dropped dead on the step this morning".
