I got a call today from SO around 2. He said he was on his way home. His uncle was at SO's dad's house and he thought he was dead. So I headed to get the kids. Before I got the kids SO called and said that yes, his dad was really dead.
It's been really hard on everyone. He was pretty sick, but his death was unexpected. He was doing pretty good yesterday.

Thanks. I haven't been able to talk to him much tonight; there has been so many people here.
I've kept the kids with me though. They're so antsy. I think they feel the stress going on.
