Sad days at Chez Psmith

It has been a very difficult few days here at Chez Psmith. Mr Psmith's brother G was unexpectedly taken to hospital on Monday morning; things went very bad very quickly, and he died Tuesday afternoon. We are all still a bit numb; it is hard to even know how to think about such a lightning bolt out of nowhere. G was only forty, and leaves my sister-in-law with three little children, our niece and two nephews. I don't know how one explains such things to a child who just wants their daddy to come home. My heart aches for them, and for all of us...

Oh, my dear, I'm so sorry for you and for your BIL and his family. Young death is a devastating thing. My uncle also died at 40, with four children 13 and under. It's sad and overwhelming. My sympathies.

Oh darling, I am so, so sorry. *holds you tightly* It takes time to react to such the sudden, shocking, untimely passing of someone who was a big part of your lives. Here's wishing you and yours the time and space to grieve however you need to. Ach, his poor family. This is so incredibly sad. *more hugs*

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother in law's passing. It's even worse when young children are left behind. My condolences to them.

Oh, I'm so sorry, Delphi. What a terrible and heartbreaking shock. Forty is so damn young, and the suddenness of it can just knock the wind out of you. I grieve for the children and your sister-in-law, who must be beside themselves.

Take care of yourselves. I hope Mr Psmith is bearing up okay. *hugs*

Oh God! That's awful. My condolences to you and hubby and all involved. It must be so hard to explain something like this, especially to young children, because really there is no explanation. How very, very sad. *Huge Hugs* to all.
