Is that too much to ask??!!! I know I am sounding like a basket case, but this has got to be one of the crappiest months ever, and its only halfway through. My dad called and let me know a relative of mine passed away today. She lost her battle with cancer. It was my grandma's brother's wife. I didn't know her very well, only because I see that side at least once a year, and she and my great-uncle made it to family events about 75% of the time. Still sad, considering this is the 3rd person in my family with cancer. She was only 64.
