First, read this.
Dead at the age of 42, and pre-deceased by his wife? That's an awful situation, especially seeing as there are kids.
Then, read this.
Now it doesn't really make a ton of sense.
Until you read this.
What poor person had to write the death notices? How awkward are the back-to-back funerals going to be? Normally I'm not particularly moved by death notices and things like that, but this seems really quite ghoulish and won't stop getting to me. I suppose it had to be done, especially for the kids, and while their breakup was apparently amicable, how do you ignore the Titanic-sized elephant in the room?
