Oh, no. I just found out that Estel, my brother-in-law passed away this morning. He was Robin's first husband. They'd been divorced for years, but was like a family member to us and was a friend of my first husband's. (We may need a score card)

He also had HepC, like she did. Damn this HepC all to hell. He'd been terminal for the past year, so it wasn't a big surprise to hear that he'd passed, but it sure does hurt. He absolutely adored Robin. She had that effect on people.

I just lit two candles on my altar beside a picture of Robin and I placed a picture I had of them both together by the candles. I lit some incense, rang a tiny brass bell, got out my handkerchief and sat down to write this.

Damn.

That is terrible, I will keep you all in my prayers and may he rest in peace, just as Robin is. *BIG HUGS*

I am SO sorry, Susan, and you're right, this damn HEPC is horrid. My brother-in-law is still hanging in with weekly treatments, but they've been told that eventually they need to consider a liver transplant. Shoot.

I hate to be such a bummer, but I have had so much death around me these past severl months.

It's easier to get out of a funk when you girls are so supportive.

Thanks for catching me.
