Everytime I have somone that I know passes away with-in a couple of day's there is another death. & 2 times over the year's I had to go to 2 funeral's in the same day & the same when 3 people died in one week I have to go to 2 funeral's in the same aswell that was 5 years ago. It just seem's to be the way it happen's.

Well 2 poeple that I know died yesterday. One was from cancer so I knew it was comming to the end soon & the other person was a good friend of the family died in his sleep. It is sad but I had to laugh his wife has alsimers & rang her daughter saying that he won't wake up (husband) when the daughter arrived & found out that he has died in his sleep she went out to tell her mum & her response was I really liked that guy & walked out watered her garden, they have been married for over 50 year's.

It does seem that way, doesn't it? I've experienced similar things over the years... nothing for ages and then BANG! It seems like it's funerals every other day. That's a really bittersweet tale about the man's wife with alzheimers :(

Alzheimer's is such a terrible disease I have lost two good friends to it.
Chelle its always true about things happening in three's if someone famous dies you guarantee there will be two more really quickly afterwards.

Take care Chelle

Hey Chelle, sorry to hear about your losses, it does seem like things like happen at once. Im bracing myself because someone i know died last week, so waiting for more, that sounds bad doesnt it. Well im not making light of your situation or anything, but try going to 10 plus funerals a day! Very different for me i know.

I agree with Chelle. The hardest thing is the motivation. But when you find it feels so good. To stay motivated for a long time is mentally very tough.
