    Guys. Bad news. I just received word that one of my uncles died in a car accident. I was pretty close to him when I was a kid, so naturally, this news is pretty devastating. I'm still trying to get over the shock, and I wish him and anyone else who might have died in the crash a peaceful rest to wherever their souls have gone.

    I've lost family to motor vehicle accidents, too, so I can relate to how you're feeling. My sincerest condolences go out to you and your loved ones. :(

    Thank you for the condolences, everyone. I've just obtained new information regarding the crash.

    My uncle was not wearing a seatbelt when the crash occurred, and preliminary autopsy has revealed that foreign chemicals were present in his bloodstream. At this time, we are not 100% certain, but we are fairly confident that he was on a drug high the night of his death. This information is especially devastating, seeing as I saw him as an older brother when I was still a kid. It's very sad and shocking to learn that he was living on the seedier side of the street. It's not a sympathetic death, seeing as how he basically ruined his own life, but it's still all the more tragic.

    More bad news. My Step-Grandmother passed away last night. This, too, is devastating, because she was my favorite grandparent. She was kind, caring, and understanding. She was strict when she needed to be, but she still loved all of us, even if most of us weren't related to her by blood. Unlike my uncle's death, which I never saw coming, I knew my grandmother would eventually die in the near future. It is a miracle she even survived this long after she was diagnosed with a terminal illness that ran in her side of the family. It doesn't, however, change the fact that she is now no longer in this world. For perhaps the first time in my life, I pray to the Lord that she finds salvation with Him.

    This just isn't your week. :(  I know how it feels to lose a grandparent, especially if it was your favorite. My grandmother (on my mother's side) died more than a year and a half ago, and she was one of the kindest people I ever loved.

    I just got word that the funeral will take place next Saturday, and it will concern both my uncle and step-grandmother. I will have to go out and purchase a new tie for my suit while my parents will be buying my brother his own suit. I thank every single person who has offered their condolences thus far.
