My dad (some of you may remember) died on Labor Day.

Monday, my step-dad died. He was a really great guy.He and my Mom have been married 34 years. He was a wonderful grandpa to my two boys and all of his 21 (!!) grandkids and 8 great grandkids.

My Mom is doing OK. So are his own kids and us stepkids. His own kids lost their Mom when they were teens.

He had been up on the roof using a leaf blower to get the leaves off it, and out of the eaves. He had a heart attack up there and had collapsed over the peak. My Mom mall-walks and came back to see him lying on the roof. She called 911, and my BIL pulled in right after her (he was going to help with Christmas lights), and climbed up there and he and a cop who showed up....they did CPR, but he'd been gone for a while, I think. The ambulance guys tried too.

I spent last night with my Mom till My bro from St. Louis came with his family. Sad.
