The unthinkable

I've not been around blogging much. Nor have I been visiting any blogs lately. But today, I got an email from Thorne about the unthinkable: her grandson died in his sleep last week, no reason, he just stopped breathing. Please visit her blog with condolences, and give her your love. She needs it.
